Planning for New Cleveland Park Library

The Cleveland Park Library is slated to be rebuilt beginning in the Fall of 2015 with a budget of $18.6M. Construction is anticipated to take three years. Specifics about an interim library have not yet been determined.

DC Public Library has completed pre-design analysis and has issued a Request for Proposal to select a contractor. A panel to choose the architect will include members of the Cleveland Park Community.

Cleveland Park residents and library users are invited to participate in the planning process. Two public meetings are currently scheduled:

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7 at 1:00 PM
Hosted by Friends of the Cleveland Park Library, this meeting will feature presentations by DCPL’s new executive director, Richard Reyes-Gavilan, and Jeff Bonvecchio, Director of Capital Projects Facilities Management.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19 at 7:00 PM
Cleveland Park Citizens Association’s monthly membership meeting will feature a discussion of plans for the library.

Both meetings will be held in the first floor meeting room of the library.
