The library is located at 143 Ritchie St., in the Academy building at the rear. There is a good selection of books for all ages, DVDs, audiobooks on CD, magazines and much more. The collection is refreshed on a regular basis so there is always something new to the shelves. Public Internet access is available with free WiFi available 24/7. And we have a wonderful Innovation Lab for you to explore.
The space includes two meeting rooms, but at this time we are not taking any bookings due to COVID-19.
The Annapolis Innovation Lab has some pretty amazing equipment for you to try, a 3D printer, Cricut Maker, sewing machine and serger, robotics and much more. See our Events calendar for supervised hours that can be booked for instruction or assistance with a project (these can be used to get a lab membership). A lab membership will allow you to book the lab during library hours for unsupervised use (call the library to book). For more details visit the Annapolis Innovation Lab website.
