Donations at MCPL Branches are temporarily on pause. To support Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, donations can be dropped off at Rockville Bookstore (4886 Boiling Brook Parkway, Rockville). Learn more at:


Germantown’s beautiful library opened on March 8, 2007, and continues to break county circulation records. If you have not taken time to visit yet, we encourage you to stop by soon. Pictures of the facility and directions to the library are on the MCPL website.

Friends of the Library, Germantown Chapter holds a monthly used book sale on the second Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the lower level meeting room.

Volunteers also maintain the book cart, a place for book-lovers to recycle their reading by donating and purchasing gently used books. To donate, hand your books to a staff member at the main circulation desk and indicate these are donations for Friends of the Library, Germantown Chapter.


You can learn all about our upcoming activities in a number of ways:

  • Check out the Friends of the Library table in the main lobby, across from the Circulation Desk on the Lower Level.
  • Bookmark this page and refer to it often.
  • Look for our quarterly newsletter or pick up a printed one at the library. Germantown Friends members receive their own copy of this newsletter as a benefit of membership. Have you joined or renewed? Click here to join.

  • Would you like to work with a fun group of volunteers and librarians?
