Mark it down: Georgetown’s public library will reopen on October 18th.
The renovations to the building, which was destroyed by an April 2007 fire, have been ongoing since Spring 2008. But first, book-lovers will have to survive without a public library for a few weeks; Georgetown’s interim public library, located on M Street next to Qdoba, will close on September 25th.
Located at 3260 R Street, the library will houses the Peabody Reading Room, which is scheduled to show a special collection of books and documents printed in Georgetown during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
According to Georgetown Patch, the library will “boast restored woodwork throughout the building.”
Let’s just avoid bringing any heat guns around that woodwork, just to be safe.
