District of Change

The DC Public Library is both the keeper of our collective history and a place where people come to create the future. As a library and civic institution, we want to engage the city in a broader conversation about where we’re coming from and where we’re heading. District of Change is an ongoing conversation series examining the transformation of the District of Columbia.

The series is produced by former Slate editor David Plotz and published author Hanna Rosin in conjunction with the DC Public Library Foundation.
