The modern 2 story brick structure featured air conditioning, a ramp for handicapped access and large areas for adult, young adult and juvenile readers. The branch served the northwest Baltimore community for forty-one years before closing for much needed renovations and technology upgrades. After a three year closure, the library reopened its doors to the public with an expanded collection of books, 32 new public computers, Wi-Fi access and an two community meeting rooms.
