NOMA: "Turning The Page" Opens Temporary “Pop-up” Used Bookshop in NOMA

Local education nonprofit Turning the Page has been raising funds through their own used bookstore, Carpe Librum, at 1030 17th St, NW in downtown DC since the store’s opening as a year-round shop in September 2013, but Carpe Librum originated as a "pop-up" and for twelve years was simply an annual event. Turning the Page has brought back the Carpe Librum pop-up in addition to the year-round store with great success in the NoMa and Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhoods.
This spring, Carpe Librum has returned to NoMa for a pop-up bookstore at 1275 First St, NE.

All proceeds from the pop-up directly benefit Turning the Page and their family engagement programs in D.C. public schools. The pop-up sells high-quality, gently used books, CDs, and DVDs, all priced $1-$4. All items for sale have been donated by the public and donations of used books, CDs, and DVDs can be dropped off directly at the pop-up whenever it is open.
The Carpe Librum NoMa pop-up opened to the public on Monday, April 25th. Regular hours are Monday through Friday 11am – 7:30pm and Saturdays 11:30am – 6pm. The pop-up will remain open for only a limited time.

This Carpe Librum pop-up was made possible by StonebridgeCarras and the NoMa Business Improvement District.
