SELF CHECK-OUT We have a new way to save time at the Queen Anne’s County branch library in Centreville. It is self checkout right at the Circulation Desk. Use the touch screen and you do not have to wait for library staff that may be busy.
It is easy to check-out, check your library account, renew items and print a list of your items. You may certainly ask staff for a lesson if you wish.
