“The District investing more than half-a-billion dollars in creating world-class libraries over the last decade would mean little if we do not invest in the upkeep of our buildings,” said Richard Reyes-Gavilan, executive director of the DC Public Library. “As Takoma celebrates a decade of service since its renovation, this refresh ensures that the building remains a welcoming and inspiring place to visit. The work also allows us to respond to growing and changing community needs.”
The last day to place holds on items to pick up at Takoma Park Library will be Wednesday, June 12. (more…)

There’s long been a picture of a chicken in a green chair on the front lawn of a house on Blair Rd. NW near the Maryland border. Every time I pass it I wonder why its there since it’s very strange; there aren’t any obvious reasons for it. Why is the house is displaying it?”
Ed. Note: I believe this is what my cousins across the pond call zeitgenossische Kunst. You know, contemporary art! Although maybe it’s a
