Library Resources & Services
Both locations have great resources for professionals and students.
The first resource is a virtual reference service available 24/7 for your researching needs. The best part of library research systems is the access they give you to digital databases that would be too expensive or exclusive to access otherwise.
Another resource is Marina, an interlibrary loan system that searches the catalogue of every library in Maryland for the item you’re looking for. This system is useful when none of the nearby counties have your item on the shelf.
Beanstack, a unique reading program, allows you to view book recommendations, review books you read yourself, and access online programs like the Summer Reading Program and the Winter Reading Program for Adults.
Library: Visit the Building
If you prefer to spend time in the buildings themselves, you’ll find charging stations for your phone, plenty of copy/scan/fax machines, and public computers. While you’re there, you can even reserve meeting rooms for presentations, group study sessions, club gatherings, and workshops.
Are you unable to make regular trips to the Charles County Public Libraries, but still want to borrow their books? Check out the library’s mobile services that let you check-out books to be delivered to your apartment.
Need a resume or LinkedIn boost? Head over to either location for Microsoft Office training.
Finally, practice tests for the driver permit exam, resume assistance, and free tax preparation services are only a handful of the innumerable services that the Charles County Library offers Waldorf residents.
