Berlin and Ocean Pines Meeting Rooms

Non-profit and civic organizations will be permitted to use our meeting rooms at the Ocean Pines and Berlin branches, beginning May 17. The rooms will operate at 25-percent capacity.  Due to orders by Governor Hogan, masks are no longer required to enter the library.  The use of masks and social distancing are highly encouraged to protect any vulnerable and at-risk staff and visitors to the library.  Restrictions may change depending on state and local guidelines, including input from the Worcester County Health Department.
