New Parklands-Turner/Congress Heights Library

A new full-service library to replace the Parklands-Turner Library

Funding has been allocated, beginning in FY 2022, to design and build a new full-service library to replace the store-front Parklands-Turner Library, located at 1547 Alabama Ave. SE.

Site Identification

In preparation, DC Public Library undertook a study to identify potential locations to build a permanent library to replace the temporary leased location.

There were two main criteria for site identification:
  • The site should be within one-half mile of the existing store-front library.
  • The site should allow for a 20,000 square foot library that would be owned by the city.
