Watha T. Daniel Library
The project to create four state-of-the-art libraries across the city was, in concept, a great idea. But, Councilmember Evans and his colleagues are now faced with 2008 completion dates and an immediate lack of facilities for those who need this city service most. In response, a November 10 town hall meeting is scheduled to discuss the plans and time lines for the reconstruction of the four (Watha T. Daniel/Shaw, Anacostia, Benning and Tenley/Friendship) closed community libraries.
"This project has had pitfalls from its inception and it is time to address these issues from the committee standpoint," Councilmember Evans said. "There were supposed to be interim facilities available for residents and those have yet to be opened - are we to expect MLK to be our main library?"
The meeting will take place from 6:30 - 9:00 pm in Room 412 of the John Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. This meeting will involve presentations by the key government officials supervising this process followed by questions from community members.
