Kuvaus:
Located in the old Bethesda Bank Building at Wisconsin Avenue and Edgemoor Lane, the first Bethesda public library, the Newcomb-Bethesda Library was established in 1931. The library opened with 600 books and supported itself by bake sales, raffles, and benefits. As the Great Depression deepened, efforts to gain public funding were defeated, and the library could not meet expenses. The Newcomb-Bethesda Library closed in 1936.

A public library reopened in Bethesda in 1940 in the basement of Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. The present day Montgomery County Public Library system was later established, and Bethesda Library joined the county system in 1952. The Bethesda Library moved into its current location at 7400 Arlington Road in 1976. It was closed for renovation in 2001 and reopened in 2003.
