Demolition of the old, bunker-like Watha T. Daniel/Shaw neighborhood library, located between Rhode Island Avenue, 7th, 8th and R Streets, NW, is scheduled to conclude by the end of July 2007. My untrained eye tells me demolition is behind schedule (I can't tell that anything's been done).
The meeting has been cancelled. From the D.C. Public Library:
You have received information announcing a "Community Listening Meeting for the Watha T. Daniels/Shaw Neighborhood Library on Monday July 23, 2007. This "Community Listening Meeting" was scheduled to be held at the Watha T. Daniels/Shaw Interim Library located at 945 Rhode Island Avenue, NW. However, this "Community Listening Meeting" has been cancelled due to a problem with getting the electrical service connected by PEPCO. Currently, this Interim Library is being served by a generator for construction purposes. However, this temporary electrical service is not suitable for public use. This meeting will be rescheduled as soon as suitable electrical service is established.Thanks to Rob for alerting me to the cancellation.
We do not take this issue lightly and will be doing all that we can to bring this facility on line for use by the residents who have come to depend on the Watha T. Daniels/Shaw Neighborhood Library. The Watha T. Daniels/Shaw Interim Library is a step in the process of bringing a newly constructed full service library back to the Shaw Community.
I understand that this issue is important to you and the residents we serve.
