​Washingtoniana Walk-In Hours


​Washingtoniana Walk-In Hours

In order to improve access during the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library modernization, we've expanded walk-in hours to match our open hours:
Sunday & Monday: Closed
Tuesday & Thursday: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Wednesday & Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
First and third Saturdays of each month: 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
While appointments are no longer required to view on-site collections, they are recommended if you would like staff to pull materials in advance of your visit.

If you’re interested in viewing items that are currently stored off-site, such as periodicals, yearbooks, photos from the Washington Evening Star biographical folders, or collections in the DC Community Archives, prior arrangements still need to be made so that staff can request to have them delivered to our interim location.

Our Special Collections Interim Access & Services page has additional information about available collections.

Please e-mail wash.dcpl@dc.gov or call 202-727-1213 with any questions.
