Palisades Library Renovation

Library opens Saturday, Jan. 20, 10 a.m.

The Palisades Library, located at 4901 V St. NW, is closed for a major interior renovation.  The Library will reopen on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Join us for a day of celebration, with story time, crafts activities, building tours and more.

The Library hired the team of Cox, Graae & Spack Architects and MCN Build to design and build the project. This project budget was $8.2 million.

The new library features:

  • Improved layout with more space for customers
  • ​New welcoming entrance and enlarged windows
  • Dividable meeting room for 100 people
  • ​Conference room
  • 3 quiet study rooms
  • New heating, cooling and electrical systems
  • New elevator
  • New furniture, fixtures and flooring
  • Environmentally sustainable design including a green roof and energy efficient lighting

Community Engagement

The Library hosted four community meetings on the Palisades Library renovation. In addition to community meetings, we conducted surveys and focus groups to gather feedback on what residents want to see in their renovated library.
