They meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:15 p.m.  Meetings are open to all - new members are always welcome. Call the branch for more information at 410-396-0399.

Chess Club

One of our most popular, ongoing programs is Chess Kings, the chess club at Pennsylvania Avenue Branch. Players receive instruction and have the opportunity to play matches. Whether expert or novice, players of all skill levels are welcome to join us.

Black Renaissance Book Club

The Pennsylvania Avenue Branch's Book Club discusses a variety of insightful, thought-provoking selections. The selections, which feature both fiction and nonfiction, are chosen by the group.
