From a press release:

Food for thought is taking on a whole new meaning this summer at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.

For a limited time, members of the Food Truck Association of Metropolitan Washington will be serving up lunch on Wednesdays outside the library at 901 G Street NW. It’s the second year the food truck association and the library have partnered together for the weekly program, called Books & Bites.

District residents and downtown workers can grab lunch at the food trucks, relax at special seating just outside of the library and enjoy the library’s free WiFi and other services.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Food Truck Association again this summer,” said Chief Librarian Ginnie Cooper. “Just like the different food trucks offer people variety, the Library offers something for everyone. I love seeing people finding good reads and good food at their Library.”

The trucks that will be parked at the library will be announced on Wednesday mornings using social media.

“Books & Bites at the Library helps draw new people to the library – some of whom may have not visited the beautiful building before – and make the area more active and vibrant,” said Doug Povich, chairman of the Food Truck Association of Metropolitan Washington.

Ed. Note: Food trucks are there Wednesdays from around 11:30 am to to about 1:30 pm.
