The Georgetown Neighborhood library reopened this morning, nearly three and a half years after a devastating fire. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty was joined by Council Chair Vincent Gray, Councilmember Jack Evans, Councilmember Harry Thomas, Chief Librarian Ginnie Cooper, Fire Chief Dennis Reuben and Georgetown community members for the ribbon cutting ceremony at 3260 R Street, NW.
“In the wake of the 2007 fire, my Administration was absolutely committed to restoring this vital community resource quickly but without compromising the integrity of the building’s historic beauty,” said Mayor Fenty. “Now this grand Georgetown landmark has risen from its ashes and is better than ever before.”

On October 2, stop by your neighborhood library for the first annual Read-In: DC Loves to Read, a city-wide celebration showcasing the joy of reading.
“People may not think they have time to read,” said Ginnie Cooper, chief librarian for the District of Columbia. “At the Read-In, in addition to having fun reading, people will learn tips on how to weave reading into their busy schedules.”
Advances in technology, such as eBooks and downloadables, allow people to read on the go. And studies have shown that reading for pleasure activates the creative side of the brain, while reading for work or school stimulates the analytical side. By using both sides of the brain, a person is better able to communicate and problem solve.
