DC Public Library is currently starting the design process for a fully funded new library in Congress Heights with the design-build team Perkins + Will Architects and Turner Construction. The new full-service, 20,000-square-foot plus library is proposed to be built next to the Congress Heights Metro Station at 1290 Alabama Ave SE. This library will replace the store-front Parklands-Turner Library, located at 1547 Alabama Ave. SE.
