This summer, fans of urban fiction will get an opportunity to meet and share their favorite books virtually via Zoom with the West End Branch Library.
As this historically Black neighborhood once again faces drastic change, Library staff are working to preserve the memories of the West End community for years to come through the West End Stories Project, a series of video recordings from community members about their longtime home.
