  • lord, didn’t this close over 3 years ago? these timeframes for refurbishments I’ll never understand. like someone once pointed out, the amount of time the dupont south metro is closed to fix an escalator is more than the amount of time it takes to build an entire building with escalators.

    SO EXCITED!!!! Oh man I love a library. Can’t wait to see the inside, if it’s half as nice as the ones they’ve done lately it should be really neat.
