Description: The Davis Library in North Bethesda is separated from the busy traffic of Democracy Boulevard by a sweeping expanse of lawn, all that is left of the Davis family farm. Montgomery County acquired the farmland and built the 16,000 square foot library in 1964. The architecture is classic for the period with a fieldstone exterior evoking the rural heritage of the property. The entry lobby features a bronze sculpture, “Taking Off” by Marcia Billig, which symbolizes the flight of imagination through reading.

Davis Library is conveniently located near the intersection of the Capital Beltway and Interstate 270. The library serves many commuters as well as residents of the surrounding communities and workers from the nearby National Institutes of Health (NIH), Marriott Corporation headquarters, and other businesses. There is a large parking lot accessible from eastbound Democracy Boulevard and from Bells Mill Rd.
