Twin Beaches Branch Proposal Presentations Changed to April 16

The decision about where the new Calvert Library Twin Beaches Branch will be located has experienced another jog in the process.  To be able to qualify for a state capital grant, the library was told that either the library or the county needed to own the land on which the library would be built. During the period that the towns could ask questions in advance of the March 28 presentation, one of the towns asked a question about an aspect of land ownership.  Initially, it was believed that the land could revert to the municipality once there was no longer a functioning library on it.  It has since been determined that the land will NOT revert.

Because the answer was a significant change, Library Director Carrie Plymire asked both mayors if they needed additional time to speak with their town councils.  Chesapeake Beach did ask for an extension to the deadline for proposals.  The library has moved the deadline and public presentation to Monday, April 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm in meeting rooms 2 and 3 of Calvert Library Prince Frederick.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
