Carpe Librum’s last day in the neighborhood is slated for Sept. 20, said Robin Crowell, the development manager for Turning the Page, the nonprofit organization that runs the pop-up used bookstore and its sister shop in downtown D.C.
“Overall, the NoMa pop-up was an enormous success,” she said in an email this afternoon.
Since opening in May at 140 M St. NE, Carpe Librum has sold about 15,000 used books, CDs and DVDs, raising about $45,000 to help D.C. students. It also has accepted about 6,000 book donations.
Turning the Page plans to open another pop-up bookstore somewhere in D.C. in the future, Crowell said. But the organization doesn’t have any definitive plans yet, she said.
