The elevators in Lauinger Library are currently out of service. The stairwell can be used to access all floors except the Lower Level. If you need assistance, please visit the Circulation Desk on the third floor or call 202-687-7607. We apologize for any inconvience.
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
Markets are all about interactions. Since the 1930s, Union Market has served its customers faithfully through the changing political, economic, and social climates of D.C. and the United States in general. The rich history of this market is now in jeopardy, as developers work to develop the property to accommodate the district's still-changing landscape. Should this development be halted to preserve the authenticity of this market, or is the redevelopment of the market necessary as a representation of the constant change necessary in Washington D.C. and in America?
