  • Closed and replaced with three computers.

  • That’s pretty harsh. I’ve been taking the kids to the MtP Library since the Petworth Branch closed for repairs, so my first pick and #1 alternative are both gone. Takoma is just alright. Luckily I discovered the Lamond-Riggs Branch this week and its huge kids section. However, don’t go looking for non-juvenile fiction in either MtP or Lamond-Riggs — a laughably small collection.

  • ugh. I’m not happy about living so close to a library even if temporary, but maybe I can steal the free wi-fi….. no one goes for books anymore, why do we even have them? hey, you kids get off of my lawn …

  • Thanks for posting – I was wondering where to return my book when (if ever) I finish. The Post mention about this just said Mt. Pleasant library closes until April 19, kind of leaving out the part that it *will* close on March 27.

  • I totally gave up on the MtP library after three attempts to get a library card (over the space of 8 months) were foiled by their mysterious lack of actual cards. *sigh*
