GM heard an intriguing rumor the other day that East Banc, the building owner of the temporary space, offered to extend the temporary library’s lease rent free. The idea would be to create a satellite library for lower Georgetown. Considering that Book Hill is is so high up Georgetown, this would be a boon to lower Georgetown.
Unfortunately, this rumor looks to be unfounded. An Eastbanc rep confirmed to GM yesterday that there were no such plans and that the lease will come to an end at the end of October. CB2 will eventually move in to the space.
