The Mt. Pleasant Neighborhood Library, at 3160 16th St. NW, opened in May 1925, and is the third oldest public library building still in use in Washington. The library, primarily funded by the Carnegie Corporation and designed by accomplished library architect Edward L. Tilton, has seen the neighborhood change over the years, and has had a number of changes and adaptations itself, most recently culminating in a full-scale renovation, restoration and expansion.
The library was built to serve the rapidly growing communities of Mt. Pleasant and Columbia Heights. Mary Foote Henderson, instrumental in the development of 16th Street in the early 20th century, made the library available for purchase. The Italian Renaissance design of the building harmonizes with the monumental architecture of the churches and embassies that line 16th Street. The Mt. Pleasant Neighborhood Library stands in the Mt. Pleasant National Register Historic District, designated in 1987.
