The Markt: Heurich House & DCPL
A Shop by the People of DC, for the People of DC! The DC Public Library is partnering with the Heurich House Museum to open a holiday shop featuring locally-made and Library-themed goods: The Markt at MLK. Find over a dozen products for gift-giving this season at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.
The Markt at MLK was curated by Heurich House Museum, who for over the last decade has dedicated their public service mission to supporting the area’s small scale makers. The museum hand-selected locally made products from eight makers including Second Story Cards, DC is My City, Terratorie, All Very Goods, Bicycle Trash, Sio Ceramics, and Wick & Paper. The shop will feature a new limited edition t-shirt design from Bailiwick Clothing Company, celebrating the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library as a vibrant center for the city.
The Library worked with its in-house Maker Space and Machinery Fabrication Lab to create a set of four wooden coasters which highlight elements of the library space, experience, and story. T-shirts and totes bags from MLK Library Friends, including the Punk Archives and the Go-Go Archives designs, as well as the Mt. Pleasant Library Friends “What’s More Punk than a Public Library” design will be for sale.
