After opening day, daily hours will be Monday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 3 - 7 p.m. All library locations are closed for cleaning 2 - 3 p.m. each day.
The newly revitalized space will include over 200 thousand new books, vast rows of public computers, D.C. history, power tools, music recording space, a rooftop garden and much more.
From the outside, it's the same iconic building that first opened in 1972. But take a closer look and you'll see that within the brick, steel and glass is a 20th Century Library with a well-deserved makeover.
