Amid fanfare over the many new and recently renovated libraries around the District, debate continues over proposed changes to the historic Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. The latest proposals include opening a central core to add more light and air to the space, originally designed by modern master Mies van der Rohe. But how to pay for the renovations and maintain the building's character are among the issues still to be resolved.
