The Metro Centre at Owings Mills will see the opening of its first tenant on Thursday as the Baltimore County Public Library's new Owings Mills branch opens its doors.
At 9 a.m. Thursday, area residents will be able to patronize Baltimore County's largest public library, a 54,333-square-foot branch with a collection of 120,000 items and 70 computers for public use – 58 for adults and 12 for teens and children – according to a press release.
The 19th Baltimore County Public Library branch is part of The Metro Centre at Owings Mills, a project that will boast 1.2 million square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail space, 1,700 apartments, and hotels with up to 250 rooms upon its completion.
The 120,000-square foot County Campus building will house the library on its first three floors, and will house 27 classrooms for the Community College of Baltimore County on the fourth, fifth and sixth floors, which are scheduled to open early this summer.
County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will host an opening celebration at 11 a.m. on March 28 at the County Campus building, which is located at 10302 Grand Central Avenue.
