by Larry Janezich
Mayor Gray cut the ribbon which officially marked the reopening of Northeast Library today, after a 16 month closure for a $10 million renovation. Gray recalled having grown up at 6th and L Streets and coming to the Library ”143” years ago to do homework or interact with somebody.
“Today,” he said, “I’m proud to be here and part of the investment of this library as part of the community.” He was introduced by Interim DC Chief Librarian, Joi Mecks. Also in attendance at today’s ceremony were candidates for Ward 6 Council eat, Charles Allen and Darrel Thompson.
