Bowie Library Reopens

After a two-year, $4.8 million renovation, the Bowie branch library reopened at its permanent location, 15210 Annapolis Rd., on Monday. The branch, which closed in August 1997 for major upgrades, had been providing services from a vacant retail site in South Bowie. Some of the many new features in the renovated library are a carpeted lobby and second-floor level, a two-story atrium, two elevators, a meeting room with a stage and theatrical lighting.

School Dedicated

Prince George's County public schools held a school dedication ceremony Aug. 21 for Judge Sylvania W. Woods Sr. Elementary School, at 3000 Church St., Landover. The school is the first elementary school built in Prince George's since 1995. The 84,660-square-foot structure houses 31 classrooms and has a capacity of 750 students. It contains a fully equipped computer room and science lab.

Woods Sr., who died in 1997 at age 69, served for 18 years as a District Court judge and for three years on the Circuit Court bench in Prince George's.
