The Adams Morgan Community Center at the LINE DC was built to support the nonprofits, artists and organizations that shape our neighborhood and city. That feeling of community, however, extends far beyond its walls – it’s part of your in-room stay, core to our cultural events, central to our art program, and one of our favorite things about Adams Morgan.
NO KID HUNGRY
Your stay has impact: we’re proud to support the work of No Kid Hungry, a DC-based organization working with communities across the country to ensure that all kids have access to three healthy meals a day, including initiatives like school breakfast and summer meals.
World Central Kitchen
Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen (WCK) uses the power of food to heal and strengthen communities through times of crisis and beyond. Since its founding, WCK has served more than 18 million meals to those impacted by natural disasters and other crises around the world. In early March, WCK’s Chef Relief Team activated #ChefsForAmerica, a movement to provide nourishing meals to hard hit communities during the COVID-19 outbreak. With partners in hundreds of cities across the United States and Spain, including the NoMad hotels in New York and Los Angeles, WCK has distributed more than 6 million meals to communities in need of support. Every reservation at the LINE DC includes a one dollar donation per night to WCK. Learn more at wck.org/sydell.
DC PUBLIC LIBRARY
The DC Public Library plays an important role across the city, and we are proud to be the library’s home in Adams Morgan.
The Adams Morgan Community Center is an official DCPL satellite location. The Library Takeout is an ever-growing collection of books – in English and Spanish – for children and young adults. Books may be checked out without a library card, and returned to the AMCC or to any branch of the DC Public Library.
DCPL Radio is the the official radio program of the DC Public Library, broadcasting weekly from Full Service Radio in the lobby of the LINE DC. Listen in for author talks, interviews, special presentations, information about about the goings-on in the library system, and much more.
On the fourth Sunday of each month, the DC Public Library and the LINE DC present Drag Queen Story Hour DC, a morning storytime at the Adams Morgan Community Center. Free and open to all, DQSH DC gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. During all DCPL x LINE events, librarians are on site to assist attendees in signing up for a library card.
A revolutionary voice in DC’s art world for 17 years strong, Transformer is more than a gallery. This non-profit is a champion of local and emerging visual artists, performance artists, and a resource for non-traditional art that has shaped the city’s art community.
With work from Transformer’s FlatFile on the walls and in the halls, the LINE DC is proud to host and support events including Transformer’s Heartbreaker’s Ball (a Valentine’s art soiree), and the annual Transformer Silent Auction and Gala after party.
Washington Performing Arts
Washington Performing Arts and their Mars Arts DC initiative are anchored by residencies for emerging artists and groups, and enacted in curated performances across all eight wards. These are artistic happenings that reflect what it means to call DC home.
