What's Happening at Maryland City at Russett Library
Walk-ins welcome! NO appointments
(Not open June-August on Sundays)
In partnership with Caring Cupboard, we have a Little Free Pantry! The mission of the Caring Cupboard program is to try to ensure that no citizen, and especially children, in Anne Arundel County suffers from food insecurity or hygiene issues of any kind and for any reason through providing food and basic necessities. We are proud to host a Caring Cupboard and we welcome community members to take what they need and donate what they can. If you drive towards the Russett Community pool past our building, it is on the left in the grassy median on our property.
