Every Wednesday at 11 a.m. starting Aug. 8 for a limited time, food trucks will be parked outside of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G Street NW, as part of the Books & Bites @ the Library initiative. People can grab lunch at the food trucks, relax at special seating just outside of the library and enjoy the library's free WiFi and other services. Each week will feature different D.C. Food Truck Association food trucks.
"During the lunchtime, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library bustles with people who stop by to pick up books before rushing to get lunch," said Ginnie Cooper, chief librarian for the DC Public Library. "Books and Bites makes the library a place where people can pick up a good book and good food."
"D.C. food trucks are mobile attractions that help attract crowds," said Che Ruddell-Tabisola, executive director of the DCFTA. "Books & Bites at the Library will help draw new people to the library – some of whom may have not visited the beautiful building before – and make the area more active and vibrant."
Participating Food Trucks include:
Borinquen Lunch Box
That Cheesecake Truck
Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats
