Leonardtown Library and Garvey Senior Activity Center

Leonardtown Library and Garvey Senior Activity Center

Project Description: This project will construct the new Leonardtown Library and Garvey Senior Activity Center in Leonardtown, MD. The project site is on the 141 acre Hayden Property off Leonard’s Grant Parkway within the corporate limits of the Town of Leonardtown.

The new library and senior activity center will be an integrated state-of-the-art facility for information resources, education and senior activities. The library will have meeting rooms, technology infrastructure throughout for visitors of all ages, a vending café, a hi-tech specialty classroom, and dedicated areas for adults, teens and children. The senior activity center will benefit from the close proximity of the library, and will also provide exercise, aerobic and fitness rooms, spaces for arts and crafts, as well as quiet rooms. The senior activity center will also provide lounge areas and a commercial kitchen.

The facility will also include outdoor terrace areas, ample parking and linkage to future recreational facilities planned for the County property on which it is being constructed. In addition to the construction of the facility and its associated site improvements, the project will also extend the Town of Leonardtown water main from the adjacent school site to Hollywood Road (MD 245).
