About MLK Library Rehabilitation
400, 901 G St NW, Washington DC
A massive $208 million rehabilitation began on June 8, 2018 at Washington, D.C.’s central library, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. The library has been closed to the public, and it will continue to be closed until 2020. The new MLK Library that will unfold, designed by Martinez + Johnson Architecture, will offer 3D printers as well as renovated reading rooms, public art, and outdoor seating spaces.
Expect a new auditorium and conference center, cafe, and a rooftop event space with a terrace. Outside, there will be public art and outdoor seating spaces for a new cafe.
