Cleveland Park Library – Update #4

June 5, 2015

Now is the critical time to provide input to the design team of the New Cleveland Park Library. DCPL has created an online website to solicit feedback, share ideas and engage in a discussion with other members of the community about the new library.

All members of the Cleveland Park community are encouraged to get involved in this discussion, learn about ideas others are talking about and add their own thoughts. The online portal allows many options for feedback, from “liking” someone else’s idea, to posting an idea of your own.

The discussion website is: http://clevelandpark.ideascale.com/. Click the “register” button at the top to create an account.

The overall project website for the CP Library redevelopment is http://dclibrary.org/newclevelandpark

Review the notes from a recent planning session held at the CP Library here.

The next community meeting will be held June 23 at 6 p.m. At that meeting, the architect team will present general design principles and project direction, informed in part by the community feedback.
