Library to Go logo

(updated September 9, 2020)

Worcester County Library branches are providing safe access to physical materials through a limited pickup service called “Library-To-Go.”  You may contact your library at least 24 hours before you want to pick up materials and request up to 20 books, DVDs (Limit of 5), and audiobooks at a time.  We will schedule a time for you to pick up materials in a safe, no-contact, environment.

 

How it Works:

Berlin Branch closed until February 1

Several staff members at the Berlin branch were alerted by the MD Dept. of Health of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. The safest course of action is to close the branch until February 1. The book drop will remain open and holds will be available for pick-up on Feb. 1.

Please contact another branch if you need assistance. Thank you for your understanding!
