Due to massive demand, the Library is currently out of COVID-19 tests. We expect to receive a supply from the Health Department every two weeks, and will update this site accordingly.

Effective November 22, 2021, masks will be required for all patrons over 2 years of age at all branches of the Ruth Enlow Library. Thank you for your patience and consideration.

Geography and Maps

Digital Sanborn Maps, 1867-1970 provides access to more than 660,000 large-scale maps for more than 12,000 American towns and cities. Sanborn fire insurance maps are the most frequently consulted maps in libraries, and are valuable historical tools. In electronic form, Sanborn maps allow users to easily manipulate the maps, magnify and zoom in on specific sections, and layer maps from different years.

The Western Maryland Sanborn Maps subscription ended June 30, 2021.  While not all maps are includes, some maps can be found through the Library of Congress website.
