Get on your feet and sing hallelujah, the crazy library plans are back! After taking a breather from her building blitz, D.C. Chief Librarian Ginnie Cooper has brought on borderline starchitect Bing Thom—-he of the swoopy Arena Stage—-to design a new Woodridge Library. The existing services will be moved to a temporary location while a new building is constructed over the next three years at 1800 Hamlin Street NE, right off Rhode Island Avenue (a neighborhood not known for its architectural landmarks).
