Located on Cradlerock Way in the Village of Owen Brown, the HCLS East Columbia Branch is the recipient of Honor Awards for Architectural Excellence from both the Potomac Valley Chapter and the Maryland Society of the American Institute of Architects. This HCLS branch opened in August 1994, underwent a renovation in 2016, and reopened in February 2018.
The East Columbia Branch features 74 computers available to the public. All computers have Internet and word processing capabilities.
The East Columbia Branch renovations doubled the space for quiet study areas (three rooms to six), and tripled the meeting room capacity. The new teen center includes classrooms for Teen Time, HiTech and Homework Club, as well as a science lab and virtual reality (VR) studio. The teen area also features dedicated space, complete with work counters and readily available project supplies, for students to create and collaborate on assignments and projects.
