THANK YOU to the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County (CSMC) for allocating the funds to build a new library for St. Mary’s County. The new Leonardtown Library will be located off of Leonard’s Grant Parkway in Leonardtown, right next to the new Duke Elementary School. The building will contain both the new 29,730 square foot Leonardtown Library and the Garvey Senior Activity Center.
Through a competitive grant process, St. Mary’s County Library has received $1,591,000 in funds from the Maryland County Library Grant Program to add to the County allocated funds for the new library.
Grimm and Parker (G&P) has been chosen as the architecture firm for the project, and Tuckman-Barbee has been chosen to fulfill the $16.9 million construction contract. Construction should be completed within 540 days of the start. A groundbreaking was held Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Watch the Facebook Live video of the groundbreaking event.
Work is progressing!
