Central Library Featured in "Libraries We Love" Book 

The Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar) is one of the 80 U.S. and Canadian libraries – out of the hundreds nominated — featured in Heart of the Community: Libraries We Love (Berkshire Publishing), edited by Karen Christensen and David Levinson. That’s libraries rural and urban, old and new, great and small.

“We looked for regional diversity from east to west and north to south, and temporal coverage, from the earliest libraries to the very newest,” according to Christensen. “We also wanted to include libraries that have successfully undergone change, whether it is relocation, renovation, expansion, new missions, or new clientele.”

Kudos to the Central Library.
