Apple’s newest location opens at the Carnegie Library on Mount Vernon Square on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
The space, which also houses the DC History Center, is Apple’s most extensive historic restoration to date restoring and revitalizing the Beaux-Arts style building that once housed DC’s Central Public Library.
Originally funded and opened in 1903, the library will again be a center for learning and discovery.
Among those in attendance at the grand opening celebration were DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans, and Events DC CEO Greg O’Dell.
Said O’Dell: “We love a great technology experience, but it really was about returning the building to its original intent: a public space, a place of gathering. This is the modern day library for all of the universe to enjoy.”
