“The current building will close permanently on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 5:30 p.m. Construction will begin shortly thereafter. The new library will open in 2018.”
4340 Connecticut Ave, NW
“The Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library, located at 3310 Connecticut Ave. NW, will be rebuilt. The Library has selected the design/build team of Gilbane and Perkins Eastman for the project, which is currently funded at $19.7 million. The new library, which is nearing the end of the design phase, will be larger to accommodate expanded space for children, teens and adults.
Some of the features of the new building include:
Warm, wood finishes with plenty of natural light.
A large, dividable first floor meeting/assembly space to accommodate 205 people. When divided, each space will accommodate 100 people. This combined space represents the largest meeting room of any of our neighborhood branch libraries.
A dividable meeting room on the lower level that can accommodate up to 105 people. When divided, each space will accommodate about 45 people.
A 400 square foot second-floor conference room that can seat 10-12 people.
Four private study rooms for up to 4 people each.
An outdoor reading garden that can be enjoyed by all customers.
Two second flood balconies where customers can enjoy reading al fresco.
Many environmentally friendly features — the Library will seek LEED Gold Certification.
The new library will be a spectacular and iconic addition to the Cleveland Park and Woodley Park neighborhoods.”
