Adams Morgan: You Are Here

“It seems like a nice name – but of course, there is no idle time.”

Val Morgan is as much an Adams Morgan fixture as her two-story book shop: Idle Time Books has been in the neighborhood since 1981, with shelves to the ceiling, and a sense of community stacked as tall.

Books from Val’s collection make up the curated micro-libraries in every room at the LINE DC, and we’re proud to call her a neighbor and a friend. Press play for the Full Service Radio interview, and for insight on this city – and this neighborhood – from the perspective of one longtime resident and small business owner.

Full Service Radio is a community radio station with 30+ local hosts, broadcasting live from the lobby of the LINE DC.
