"The subject scope is intentionally broad, punk and related local music 1976-present, in order to capture a larger context and include well-know and lesser-known stories. In addition to bringing in donated archival collections, we are building a library of recorded music, at present focused on punk and related local music but to eventually expand to include other genres and time periods."
Yes, the D.C. Punk Archive is a thing!

Tara’s been kicked out of school— literally. Managing to survive being thrown from the floating Hidden Schools through her Craft alone, she attempts to go back to her childhood home and resume her old life of plowing and tending sheep. But when your biggest talent is bringing the dead back to life as zombies, your childhood friends can quickly turn into a mob wielding pitchforks.

A look back at reading trends from over 6 decades ago: In September 1948 the Washington Times Herald quipped that “books on where to go if you gotta and how to make life more livable if you can’t were in greatest demand at the District public library in the last year.” 
The mark of World War II is still heavy upon DCPL patrons as "literature on foreign lands literarily or literally swamped library employees during the year.  Most requests came from those who either were preparing for overseas service or wanted to reminisce about such."
Home and creative DIY were also often requested.
