“The Thurmont Regional Library is a fantastic community resource.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This great library is an architecturally interesting building that reflects the historical Catoctin Furnace which is located in the area. They have an extensive collection of materials to fit the interests and needs of all ages in addition to many programs geared to all ages. If they don't have the book you want they can usually get it from another library in the system. The library offers wifi and computers and a beautiful outdoor deck for reading and concerts in nice weather. A friendly and helpful staff is also available to answer questions.
Check it out!

“If You Leave Empty-Handed, Its No Ones Fault But Your Own !”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I love Thurmont Regional Library. The building designed was inspired by the iron works furnace which is part of the Catoctin area history. The library features large meeting rooms and several smaller meeting rooms used for library presentations as well as being available for the public to reserve for private use. The Childrens' library is incredible. It has a very large selection of books and offers numerous activities and assorted multi media literacy rich materials to offer wonderfully coordinated enrichment.The staff are always very helpful and friendly. They don"t mind helping someone like me who is uncomfortable with all the technology that abounds here as well. The library keeps up with the needs of the community. It keeps the community updated by offering information about various community organizations. One final note: I appreciate that the head librarian has worked here before I moved to Thurmont in 1992 at the old library when it occupied an old store front. She was able to see the library through to its new location and building and she continues showing her dedecation to this community.

“An Unexpected Gem in a Small Town”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Thurmont, Maryland is a small town with a great library. The building is about three years old and it has much more to offer than most people would expect from a small town library. It provides very modern research capabilities as expected in any library in the digital age, but it also offers a surprising atmosphere that invites patrons to stay and enjoy the very attractive facility itself. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, read or perform computer research. In addition, it has a very large outdoor deck under a roof, and this overlooks a wooded area for people to read, and enjoy the scenic views in comfortable outdoor seating.

“Great new location!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We frequent this library often with our 3 year old daughter and have been going since it opened a few years ago. The building is unique, the staff is friendly and helpful, and they offer some great resources and space to enjoy - there's a back deck that's perfect for a picnic and reading time. They offer some excellent story times for small children and always have family friendly events going on (movie showings, special authors visiting, local business' like the zoo and dance teams, special events, etc).
