A Diamond in our Midst: The Petworth Library


Petworth Library, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Thank you Lisa for asking about the Petworth Library. I had been meaning to check it out for months. I have to tell you, my mind was blown. It was awesome! I got my library card today and it took all of five minutes. This is the first library card I have had in since I as 17. First of all the people who work there are absolutely fantastic. Super nice and welcoming. There is Wifi throughout the library and a number of computers for use as well. Otherwise it is a traditional library with a children’s, adult’s, reference, audio and dvd sections. And let me tell you about the dvd selection it was quite eclectic. I ended up taking out season three of the Wire (which is absolutely badass by the by). The dvds ranged from Family Guy to Alfred Hitchcock to the Simpsons to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to Bird Flu How Safe are We to Six Feet Under. Totally blew my mind. I am so embarassed that I am just discovering this gem now. The only flaw was that it was a bit spartan and they can certainly use your book donations if you have any to spare (I will remind you again next week.). But the books they did have were super, they even had the Eliot Pearlman book that I’ve been looking forward to reading. So the next time you have five minutes, head down to the library on Georgia and Upshur, get a library card and enjoy!
