Tomorrow is a big day for the Petworth Library and the many communities it serves.  The library received a $12.4 million dollar renovation, which included:

  • exterior renovation:
  • window and door restoration:
  • masonry repointing and cleaning;
  • roof repairs;
  • new exterior lighting;
  • improved ADA access; and,
  • a new cupola and balustrade on the roof according to the original design intent.

Renovation of the exterior of the library began in June 2009. In November 2009 the library closed for the exterior renovation. The library reopened on February 28, 2011, and now it’s time to celebrate. This Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., the library will host its official open house. The full day’s schedule is below.
