History:Baltimore County designated two areas as growth areas to be supported with governmental services. These areas are called town centers. The White Marsh Library opened on January 25, 1988 in one of these town centers. The building was built and leased from Nottingham Properties, Inc. who built the neighboring White Marsh Mall and developed the community of White Marsh.The size of the library is 15,000 square feet and includes a meeting room with a capacity of 65 people. Located in the White Marsh Town Center, the White Marsh Library facility is convenient to local residents and many shoppers to the area.The library received a $10,000.00 grant from the Rouse Company, which owns and built the White Marsh Mall. This money has been used to purchase an interactive multimedia CD-ROM computer for the use of preschool children. It has been adapted to meet the needs of the visually impaired child and children with poor motor skills. The computer is equipped with keyboard overlays, a large track ball, and a 20-inch monitor.
