West End Neighborhood Library

1101 24th Street NW

(between N I St & N K St) 

Washington, DC 20037

240-305-3616 (Saraiah Naps, organizer)

Who and what should I bring to the meeting?

People with narcolepsy and hypersomnia, and the people who love them, are welcome. You are welcome to bring your spouse/partner, boyfriend/girlfriend, children, parents, friends, etc.

Fingerfood (cookies, fruit, etc.) and drink to share.**

A few dollars to toss into the communal babysitting kitty, which pays for postage and copying fees to notify sleep physicians' patients of our meetings.**

** Note on food and drink, time and energy, and financial and emotional resources:  

Some of us have symptoms that are under better control than others, and some of us struggle mightily just to get to a support group meeting. Some of us have relative financial security, and some of us cannot work and are living on extremely small incomes. In this support group, each of us takes care of the other as we can.  And that extends to splitting the needed time, energy, and/or funds required to provide food, drink, and postage costs amongst those of us able to help share those burdens in any particular month. So when and if you do not have the energy, time, or funds to bring edibles or a few dollars, that's just fine - and that's exactly when you should be coming to the support group meeting.  Please, never ever let inability to bring food, drink, or a couple of bucks keep you away.  We take care of each other, and there will be always be months when it's your turn to provide care in some way to a deeply grateful person when others cannot.  

Getting to the

West End Neighborhood Library

in Washington DC

The West End Library is at 1101 24th St NW, near L St NW.

Take the Blue or Orange line to the Foggy Bottom - GWU Metro Station. Walk North on 23rd St to Washington Circle, go left about a third of the way around the circle and turn left on Pennsylvania Avenue and right on 24th St.


You could also take the Red line to the Farragut North Metro Station and walk West on L St from 17th St to 24th St. This would be a longer walk.
