You can finally begin to unclutter your bookshelves (to make room for new acquisitions, naturally) and support your library at the same time.  Our Friends group is now ready to accept book donations for the library book sale.  Bring any books that are in good condition to our circulation desk for donation.  No textbooks please.

While we love for you to walk by the library and gaze at the construction from the sidewalk, the Georgetown staff has a request to make of our patrons who have been visiting the R Street branch.  Please stop returning materials in the (not yet set up) book
drop and handing them to the construction workers.

This is a
construction site, not a working library, and we will be unable to check
your materials in until the October 18. As part of the DC Public Library,
materials from Georgetown can be returned to any public library in the District.

Also, materials handed to non-library staff may be lost or misplaced before we get our system set up and will remain on your account.
