The District of Columbia Public Library offers library cards to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Washington, D.C. The closest branch of the DC Library is Tenley-Friendship located across from the Tenley metro, 4450 Wisconsin Ave. NW. The Metropolitan Council of Governments maintains a list of area public libraries.
The Library of Congress is open to researchers, but first you must obtain a Reader Identification Card. It can take a long time for the delivery of books from the Library of Congress stacks, so plan on taking something to do while you wait.
