The DC Public Library partnered with the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) and D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) to build a mixed-use development in the Sursum Corda neighborhood. The project included rebuilding Walker-Jones Elementary School, which opened in August as a K-8 school; space for a recreation facility operated by DPR; and construction of a new 4,500 square foot library.
