Can The Library Be Your New Hot Spot? If It's This Gorgeous—Yes!

comments
If you ever thought a public library couldn't be legitimately cool, think again. D.C.'s gorgeous new (and newly renovated) public buildings are works of art and were transformed inside and out by renowned architects. Head-turning design marvels have been popping up all over town, starting with the Watha T. Daniel Library in Shaw, and if you haven't been inside a library since you were 12, we highly recommend planning a visit. The newest addition, the Francis A. Gregory Library in Hillcrest, just opened last month, and with its combo of futuristic glass and earthy, comforting wood interiors, it might just replace the neighborhood Starbucks as your quiet hangout spot.
