About CCPL

Charles County Public Library System (CCPL) has four physical buildings and one mobile library. The Waldorf West and P.D. Brown Memorial branches are both located in Waldorf. The La Plata branch serves as the administrative headquarters for the system and is located in the town of La Plata. The western side of the county is served by the Potomac Branch located in Ruth B. Swann Park in Indian Head. CCPL has a staff of more than 100 full-time and part-time employees. Our branches house over 200,000 volumes of printed material, audio books, film, and other documents. Currently, there are over 75,000 county residents who have library cards and that number grows every day.

The library offers a wide variety of services beyond just books. We offer access to public computers and printing, online research databases, jobs resources, public meeting rooms, passport services and more. We are currently celebrating our 100th year of service to our community with a year long anniversary celebration.
