About the Douglass-Truth Branch
The current Douglass-Truth Branch was expanded and reopened Oct. 14, 2006. The building follows historic preservation guidelines of the original library, which is a city landmark. It has a grand staircase as well as the Soul Pole, a totem pole depicting African-American history given to the Library in 1972 by what was then called the Rotary Boys Club. (Due to age and exposure to the elements, the Soul Pole has recently been taken down for evaluation and possible restoration. Keep up to date at www.spl.org/SoulPole.)
