Free Chromebook Distribution for Eligible Households

In partnership with Worcester County Government and University of Maryland Extension, Worcester County Library is excited to announce that free Chromebooks are available to distribute to qualified households. These Chromebooks have been provided by the Connected Devices (MD-CDP) grant program from the Maryland State Department of Housing and Community Development. Access to technology is one key to achieving economic freedom and accessing important educational opportunities. The MD-CDP grant program is designed to assist in Maryland’s digital equity and inclusion efforts.

CatalogIt - New Resource

The Worcester County Library is proud to be a resource and repository for historical information related to Worcester County and the surrounding areas. We have been working to make our historical records more accessible to patrons both in-person and digitally. We have recently uploaded several of our collections to a web app called CatalogIt, which will allow you to view and search our collections from the library or from home. From photographs and newspaper clippings, to programs and yearbooks, the collections cover a range of topics and formats.
