A schematic design of the future Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.

Next year, the flagship branch of the DC Public Library system – the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library downtown – will close its doors for a much needed renovation. The historic, modernist building designed by Mies van der Rohe will also be re-imagined over the course of the three years it’s expected to be closed. We talk with the director of the library system to find out what’s in store and how he envisions the transformation of the space being a reflection of the changing ways patrons use public libraries.
