Farmers Market to Add

Cooksville Location

The Howard County farmers market is expanding to a third location beginning Saturday.

The market will be open from 9 a.m. to noon every Saturday at the Glenwood Branch Library, 2350 Route 97, Cooksville. The market already operates in Columbia from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays at Mount Pisgah AME Church, 5901 Cedar Fern Ct., and at the same time on Thursdays at the East Columbia Branch Library, 6600 Cradlerock Way. All three markets will remain open throughout the summer and part of fall.

County Artists Needed

For Non-Juried Show

The Howard County Center for the Arts is seeking artists to submit work for the "HoCo Open," a non-juried exhibition for artists who live, work or study in Howard. Pieces must be dropped off between 3 and 5:30 p.m. June 24 at the Howard County Center for the Arts, 8510 High Ridge Rd., Ellicott City.

All work must be original, no reproductions, and have been completed in the last two years. Entries will be accepted on a first-come basis until the gallery is full. Pieces already shown in the center's galleries will not be accepted.

The exhibit will run from July 1 through Aug. 12. For more information, call 410-313-2787.

Anti-Theft Measures

Available for Vehicles

Howard residents can have vehicle identification numbers etched on their vehicle windows during a free event from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Howard County Police Community Office, 9105-G All Saints Rd., Laurel.
