The DC Public Library invited the public to share its opinion on the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library this past Tuesday and Monday. The DCPL hopes to modify programs, layout and community roles in an effort to improve for public use. Funds are currently not budgeted until 2018 for alterations to the library's layout. The current estimated cost for the renovation ranges from $225-250 million.
Head of DCPL Richard Reyes-Gavilan said that one common complaint regarding the difficulty of accessing the upper floors of the building due to few "intuitive clue[s]." Other mentioned issues included a lack of uniform temperature around the building. The next public meeting is scheduled on Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the MLK Library.
