New West End Library
The West End Neighborhood Library, at 1101 24th Street NW, will be rebuilt. The new library will be part of a mixed use project being built by EastBanc real estate development company. The design, by architect Enrique Norten of Ten Arquitectos, features a 21,000 square foot library on two levels, with eight stories of residential housing above.
The new library will feature welcoming spaces for children, teens and adults. The library will have a large meeting room, two conference rooms and several quiet study rooms. The development also includes a cafe and underground parking.
During construction, interim library services will be provided at 2522 Virginia Avenue NW. The 4,000 square foot space will feature separate spaces for children, teens and adults, 20 computers and a meeting room for 40 people.
