We get by with a little help from our friends!

The historic Carnegie Library on Mt. Vernon Square, home of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., is temporarily closed after the discovery of mold in two areas of the building. Thanks to the generosity of valuable community partners in the city the Historical Society’s events, exhibits and programs continue.
