WASHINGTON — Architects and library officials want to hear from the public about what they would like to see in a major renovation of the central Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown Washington.

The library is holding a public meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the central library for the public to share ideas. Library officials want to know what services, facilities and technology that patrons would like to see in the renovated library.

District of Columbia officials have chosen an architectural team to lead and design the renovation project. The 1972 library designed by Mies van der Rohe is a historic landmark.

Library officials will work with the architects to decide whether to renovate the building as a stand-alone library or as a mixed-use building with additional floors.
