Our Community

Conveniently located smack-dab in the center of Baltimore, anyone can become a member of the library, and everyone can benefit from our affordable resources, community knowledge base, creative surrounds, and welcoming staff!



Oliver Street is where it’s at!  Home to Area 405, The Annex, City Arts, and BYKE Collective, our nearby neighbors in Greenmount West include Baltimore Design School, The Copy Cat, and The Cork Factory.  If you haven’t visited this part of Baltimore in a while or ever, don’t miss an opportunity to see the amazing vibrancy of legacy residents and creatives living side-by-side, working hard to create an authentic and culturally integrated neighborhood.

All of this within walking distance of the Station North Arts and Entertainment District; Baltimore’s newest and most exciting arts and culture destination!  Positive changes are happening in this city and we are at the heart of it all! Come join us!

While many of our members are from the surrounding neighborhood, we have members as far as DC, and all represent a diverse population of men, women, and some industrious kiddos! That’s part of what makes our community great; all of our unique life experiences make everything we have to share important.  And when it comes to learning to do and make things on your own, one thing is for certain - all advice is helpful and there are myriad ways in which to do any one thing.  We learn by sharing!
