Woodridge Library Construction News
The Woodridge Neighborhood Library is being rebuilt. This project is fully funded at $16.5 million. The DC Public Library worked with the award-winning team of Wiencek + Associates and Bing Thom Architects to design the new Library.
The building design is complete and the construction process has begun. The new 20,000 square foot library will feature separate spaces for adults, teens and children. In addition, the library will offer:
- comfortable seating for 200 customers
- 40 computers and free high-speed WiFi
- a large meeting room to accommodate up to 100 people
- two conference rooms for up to 14 people
- quiet study rooms
- a roof terrace with seating and programming space
Learn more about the project on the Woodridge Library blog. During construction, an interim library os operating three blocks south of the library at 1790 Douglas St. NE. (the corner of 18th & Douglas). The new Woodridge Library will open in 2015.
