The Library's James Madison Building is located on Capitol
Hill between 1st and 2nd streets on Independence Avenue, SE.
The Capitol South Metro station on the blue and orange lines
is across the street from the Building's SW corner entrance.
Traveling to the Library by car is not recommended for researchers.
The only parking available is in the surrounding residential
neighborhood and spaces can be hard to find. Non- residents
of Ward 6 are limited to a maximum of 2 hours parking per day
and the City's parking enforcement is extremely efficient.
