Stanley Memorial Library is the Laurel, Maryland branch of the Prince George's County Memorial Library System,[1] located at the intersection of Seventh Street and Talbott Avenue. The library is named after the family of Charles H. Stanley, a city commissioner (1880–1882), mayor (1891–1893),[2] and state comptroller (1911–1912).[3]

The library opened in 1967 and completed a major expansion in the 1990s. Having outgrown its present site, there are plans to build a new facility on the site or elsewhere.[4] Friends of the Laurel Library, a philanthropic group of local community members, has supported the branch since January 1996.[5]
