Print and Picture Collection
Designed as part of the multipurpose Mantua Community Center, the Mantua Branch opened on July 9, 1979. This interior view, highlighting circulation desk activity, was taken in 1982.
The library was renamed in 1995 to honor Charles L. Durham, who was on City Council (and part of its first black caucus), and then appointed a Common Pleas court judge; he was a strong advocate for the community, and was deeply involved in the struggle for civil rights.
The branch serves the Mantua and Powelton communities.
