Douglass-Truth Neighborhood Library
Douglass-Truth Neighborhood Library Review
A city landmark that offers a little something for history buffs, architecture fans, and public art lovers alike, this library was remodeled in 2006. The new wing follows historic preservation guidelines to respect the original library, which is grand. Local artists Marita Dingus and Vivian Linder created sculptures and three-dimensional relief panels for the branch, which can be seen in the spacious corridor connecting the two buildings. Paintings of former slaves and abolitionists Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth by artist Eddie Ray Walker are also on display. Don't miss the Soul Pole, a totem pole depicting African-American history, located outside on the grassy area on the corner of 23rd Avenue and E. Yesler Way.
