From Carrie Willson, Calvert Library Executive Director
We could not be more excited about plans for the new Calvert Library Twin Beaches Branch! This page will reflect progress updates and general timelines for the project.
Colimore Architects was awarded a contract for architecture and engineering for the new Twin Beaches Branch in February of 2020. Colimore contracted with HBM Architects to do the library-specific design for the project. Groundbreaking took place in spring of 2022 and the new library should be complete in winter of 2024. The new branch in North Beach will be nearly four times the size of the current space at the Captain’s Quarters in Chesapeake Beach. It will have a large meeting room that can be subdivided into two smaller 50-person meeting rooms, study space, a maker space, dedicated children’s and teen spaces as well as terraces with a view of the bay. We’re very excited to be bringing this 21st century library to life in the Twin Beaches community!
