5300 Wisconsin Ave, NW
Ed. Note: Another Carpe Librum opened in Union Station back in April.
I’ve been really bummed about Carpe Librum’s Farragut location closing, so you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across a new location in the Mazza Gallerie last night! The man working there told me they’d been open for a few weeks and are planning on making it a permanent location. Their posted hours are Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-7pm, and Sun noon-6pm. They told me they are always accepting book donations during business hours!
There was no obvious signage outside, nor is the location listed yet on Google maps or the Carpe Librum website, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew it was there. I would have had no idea had I not seen it while shoe-shopping on the lower level of T.J. Maxx.”
