D.C.’s newest public library is opening this Saturday. The Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library at 3310 Connecticut Ave. NW will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly-rebuilt space at 10:30 a.m. on June 16.
The design/build team of Gilbane and Perkins Eastman are behind the new building, which will feature the largest meeting room of any neighborhood branch libraries. The design incorporated several pieces of art from the old library into the new building. The Library will seek LEED Gold certification, and there are going to be so many green spaces too — find an outdoor reading garden and two second floor balconies where patrons can relax with a book.
