This branch of the Chicago Public Library is named in honor of former slave and abolitionist Fredrick A. Douglas (ca. 1817-1895). It was originally designed in the art deco style and built in 1929. It was resdesigned in 1980 and rededicated in 1981. The branch features artwork funded through the Percent for Art Ordiance administered by City of Chicago Public Art Program including four felt banners by artist Emilio Cruz.
