The Historic Mt. Pleasant Library

The Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library, located in the diverse Mount Pleasant neighborhood in Washington, D.C., is a beloved DC Public Library branch, known for its Spanish language collection and widely attended children’s story time. Dedicated in 1925, the Library was the third and final DC Public Library building built with funding from Andrew Carnegie. As part of the Mt. Pleasant National Register Historic District, the library was designated historic in 1987, and is the third oldest public library still in use in Washington DC.
