Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Kiplinger Library Open House on MLK Day! (Monday)


From email:

Please join the Trustees, staff, and volunteers at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., for our special open house this Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in service to the community.
The Kiplinger Research Library will welcome visitors from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Day-of-Service open house activities on January 16 will include general orientation sessions to acquaint attendees with the resources available to them at HSW. Attendees will also have an opportunity to meet board members, longtime volunteers, HSW’s interim management team; and enjoy a few highlights from the Kiplinger Washington Collection, recently donated to HSW by Kiplinger Washington Editors, Inc.

HSW is planning to reopen the library on a limited basis two days a week and would like to garner community opinions about how and when reopening plans should move forward.
