The following is a question submitted by a patron and answered by the Library:
Q. Is noon written as 12 a.m. or 12 p.m.
A. Neither is correct. The Library went on the Internet to find that the abbrieviaions stand for “post meridian” (after noon) and “ante meridian” (before noon). You should write 12 midday or 12 noon, or simply refer to “noon.” CLOSED MONDAY Both libraries in Centreville and Kent Island will be closed all day Monday in honor of Memorial Day.
