After environmental testing, Washington, D.C.’s convention and sports authority, Events DC, found mold in two areas of Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square. On a temporary basis, Events DC closed the library in order to rectify the areas as well as perform testing in other spaces.
Events DC employees and the staff at the Historical Society of Washington are being relocated. An Events DC press release did not specify where they are being relocated to.
Curbed reached out to Events DC to learn where exactly the mold was found, what type of mold was found, and what the source of the mold was. Curbed also asked if the mold caused any damage and how long the library will be closed. No response was given by the time of this article’s publication.
