At this time, the library is not open however it does offer curbside pickup and we are waiting for news from them as to when we will be able to hold our first meeting for the season. We do not hold meetings in June, July, and August. Have a wonderful summer and watch for news of our first meeting hopefully in the fall.
The Friends of Rockville Public LIbrary would like to remind library card holders that museums are opening and most passes can be obtained online. We suggest calling the museum (s) of your choice before obtaining the pass to find out their hours and rules for visiting.
