Mayor Gray's biweekly presser May 7

Mayor Vincent C. Gray will hold his regular biweekly presser May 7 from 10:30 - 11:30 am at Woodridge Library (1801 Hamlin St NE).   Part of the presser will include a celebration of the demolition of the library to make way for a state-of-the-art facility.

The advisory provides background on the library:

The D.C. Public Library has renovated or rebuilt 15 neighborhood libraries since 2009. The new, 20,000-square-foot Woodridge Library will open in 2015. It will feature separate spaces for adults, teens and children; 40,000 books, CDs, DVDs, and other library materials; comfortable seating for 200 customers; 40 public-access computers and free Wi-Fi Internet access; a large programming room for up to 100 people; and two conference rooms. It will also be the first library to have a green roof that will also serve as space for library programming.
