Southeast Library Renovation Updates

Southeast Library Renovation Updates

The design process will begin in Spring 2019

The Southeast Library, at 403 7th St. SE, is scheduled for a renovation. Originally opened in 1922, the Southeast Library was the second of three Carnegie funded libraries built in the District. 

Community Engagement

Community engagement is a vital aspect of the design process for any major change in a neighborhood library. The Library will seek community input thru a variety of formats, including surveys, focus groups and community meetings.

Community Meetings

Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, the library hosted a community meeting at the Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE.
Executive Director Richard Reyes-Gavilan discussed the project process and timeline, and shared examples of buildings around the city that the Library has completed to date.
