The National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) is currently under construction and is scheduled to open November 2015. The NMAAHC Library will be on the 2nd floor of the new museum; its collection will support the research and documentation of all aspects of the African American experience.
The Anacostia Community Museum Library is a resource supporting the mission of the Anacostia Community Museum, which is to challenge perceptions, broaden perspectives, generate new knowledge, and deepen understanding about the ever-changing concepts and realities of ‘community’ while maintaining its strong ties to Anacostia and the D.C. Metropolitan region.
The repository features a modern reading room with connections for laptops and cameras, and a microform reader. Researchers must call or email Mike Hardy in advance of any visit to ensure materials are available for viewing.
