The New Frostburg Community Library on East Main Street will rise above the space popularly known as the Fidelity Bank parking lot. The site, in the center of town, is a gift from the City of Frostburg. Thirty-five open public parking spaces will lie beneath and to the rear of the building.
Since 1985 small civic groups have been planning and fundraising for a larger, better-equipped library than we now have. Our present building is deteriorating rapidly. We need inviting and comfortable reading areas to serve the different needs of children, adults, and senior citizens.
The Frostburg State University library book collections and services, while available to all, serve academic and research needs which are different from the needs of the greater Frostburg community. Our elementary, junior and senior high students would be better served by special collections geared toward their respective ages. The new library technologies would provide access to local, national and world wide library resources.
Architect Melanie Hennigan, of the firm Grimm and Parker of Calverton, Maryland, specialists in designing libraries, has designed a building compatible with local architecture to enhance the heart of our city.
This new community library will provide within its walls, a warm and inviting atmosphere for residents and visitors alike.
