Mighty Life List #20, Part 1: Visit every library in the DC system, take a picture, and check out a book.

There are 25 libraries in the DCPL system, and I’m hoping to make it to all of them. Although I’ve been to an handful already, Watha T. Daniel, Shaw’s library that just reopened in a brand new building is the first I photographed. I think it’s really beautiful and was getting a lot of use when I went by on a Tuesday afternoon.

The ground floor had the children’s section, along with new books, large print, and DVDs.

The second floor had the adult and teen books, both fiction and nonfiction, along with study rooms and lots of tables and chairs which were getting a lot of use as folks took advantage of the free wi-fi.

I enjoyed browsing, and ended up checking out two books: The United States of Arugula by David Kamp, which I am already enjoying and Easy hikes close to home, Washington, D.C. by Paul Elliott, which I’m hoping will give us some ideas for good weekend hikes.

1 down, 24 to go.
