From the DC Public Library:

“Library customers will soon be able to borrow and return physical items from the DC Public Library. On May 29, take-out service will be offered at the Anacostia and Cleveland Park libraries as part of Mayor Bowser’s plan to reopen the District.

Because the District’s Public Health Emergency remains in effect, Library service will be restored in phases. This approach allows the Library to ensure the safety of customers and staff and to begin replenishing its physical collection. Read More
