Mount Pleasant Library Expansion Meeting

library2, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I’ve seen lots of back and forth on some listservs discussing whether or not the Mt. Pleasant Library should be expanded at its current location (corner of 16th and Mt. Pleasant Street) or in an area in Columbia Heights. Does anyone feel strongly about the Mt. P library expansion?

From an email:

“ANC1D is sponsoring a ward-wide meeting concerning the renovation and expansion of the Mount Pleasant Library, on Tuesday, March 3rd, at 7:00 p.m., at the La Casa Community Center, 3166 Mount Pleasant Street.

There is considerable support now for the notion that the expansion of
the library should be to another site in Ward One, outside Mount
Pleasant, to better serve the whole population of Ward One.

Councilmember Jim Graham will facilitate this dialog.”
