About This Branch

 

The Randallstown Library opened in October 1967 in a 29,000 square foot building. Construction cost was $475,000. On May 5, 2001 an early morning one-alarm fire damaged the roof and workroom areas and caused extensive smoke and water damage to the stack area. In July 2001, the Randallstown Mini Library operated from a trailer parked in the branch parking lot. It provided full-time service, adult and children's fiction and non-fiction, audio visual materials, and 10 public computers. On April 29, 2002 the renovated Randallstown Library reopened as a full service library. Another major renovation and redesign of floor space took place starting Monday, January 30, 2017 with the branch reopening on Thursday, June 29 at 11:30 a.m. Customers have access to more public computers, enclosed children's and teen areas, single use and collaborative workspaces, quiet study and reading rooms and, last but not least, Baltimore County Public Library's Center of Excellence, The CoLab, a computer/technology/make-create space.

 

 

About This Community

 

Christopher Randall settled in Anne Arundel County in the year 1679. There he purchased three tracts of land totaling nearly 1,000 acres, and named them Randall's Fancy, Randall's Purchase, and Randall's Range. Randall died in 1684, leaving behind his wife Johanna, and his sons Christopher Randall Jr. and Thomas Randall. The family later moved to Northwest Baltimore County (ca. 1719), where the area known as Randallstown preserves their name.
