Repository description (extant): The Douglass Center Library was organized in 1970 to serve both Urbana and Champaign, a joint project of the two cities' libraries, Lincoln Trail Libraries System, and the Champaign Park District. The Library was named for Frederick Douglass, the American abolitionist and journalist who escaped from slavery and became an influential lecturer -- including at least one stop in Champaign.
The beautiful Douglass Branch Library stands in Douglass Park, just west of B. T. Washington School in north Champaign. [...] The Branch offers many of the same collections and services as the Main Library.
