A local, long-time political blogger is getting all bummed out about the city, and asked — begged — for positive postings.
This one’s easy: The DC public library system. The new and the newly refurbished buildings are beautiful; they’re quiet and comfortable. I use Petworth and Shaw mostly. Books and movies are available for the easy browsing, requests are easily made online and fulfilled with a timely E-mail notice. Staff is outstanding: I returned a book with a random photograph in the pages. (It had been there when I got the book and I left it in.) A librarian tracked me down to see whether I wanted the picture back. Service plus.
Themail@dcwatch.com has more whining.
