The building which houses the Reisterstown Branch dates from the 1820s when it was known as the Franklin Academy.  In 1874, it became the first high school in Baltimore County.  The building became the Reisterstown Branch Library in 1961.

This library reminded me of a favorite book store. It has a large display of new arrivals with a note card in each book, indicating the name of the person who recommended it. If you've not been to a library in a while, you'll be surprised to find a self check-out system, which is more high tech than the grocery store self check-out system. Just place your selections on the scanning area, then, watch the names of the items appear on the large monitor above. Also, there are so many choices of audio-books and other media, it's the nicest library I've been to lately.

Everyone should love their local library. Although the building is small they have a good selection of content. Avoid going between 3pm and 4pm after the middle school across the street lets out.

I was there today with my friend looking for a book for the middle school summer reading essentive when her grandma dropped us off and the lady was very helpful. And she was really nice. She had helped us with the books. She printed out the summer reading options. And she kept the books on hold for us. And since we were waiting for my friend's grandma to pick us up she gave us some teen boxes to do. It was so fun and the service is great.
