I grew up in Capitol Hill, Washington DC and I was saddened to hear about the fire at Eastern Market yesterday. I have many fond memories of the Market Day celebration and shopping at Eastern Market.
Interestingly enough there was also a fire at the Georgetown Branch of DCPL at the same time, which is interesting as I am a librarian as well. I didn’t work at DCPL but I did visit it frequently as a child and that’s where I learned to crochet!
I hope these two historic buildings and their contents are up and running soon so more people can enjoy them.
