Hans Kindler was the founder and conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra for its first eighteen seasons, from 1931 to 1949. His library of orchestral performance sets was donated to the DC Public Library in 1951. This special collection includes over 900 titles and is available for use, free of charge, by orchestras and ensembles in the Washington Metropolitan region.
Join us there on first Wednesdays beginning in May
Need a library card and a latte? A book and a baked good?
Then get ready! Because with the warm weather comes the return of the Georgetown Neighborhood Library's monthly visits to Baked & Wired (1052 Thomas Jefferson St. NW)!
Beginning on May 6, you can drop by the locally owned coffee shop and bakery from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month and use our Library Takeout service to sign up for a library card, check out materials, and more.
