Thanks to Mark for sending an update on the Flagship Apple Store, coming to the Carnegie Library, from the Washington Post:

“Apple officials say they plan to restore the building to its original grandeur and outfit Carnegie as a place to hold a slate of free, open-to-the-public concerts, art exhibitions, workshops for teachers and coding classes for children.

The ultimate goal, of course, is to sell more iPhones and iPads. Where the Carnegie Library once housed the city’s book collection, Apple plans a “Genius Grove,” a tree-lined sales floor where company reps will demonstrate how to maximize Apple products for music, photography or other passions. What long ago were reading rooms would become places to browse and sample Apple products.

The company is scheduled to present its plans to the neighborhood Advisory Neighborhood Commission on Monday evening.”
