Frances Morrison Central Library


SPL's main library location is located on 23rd Street across from City Hall. It's named after Frances Morrison, who was the chief librarian from 1961 to 1980. During her tenure as Chief Librarian, Frances Morrison oversaw the construction of the new central library and two new libraries, J. S. Wood and Carlyle King Branches. She was responsible for the establishment of the Local History Room, expanded the Fine & Performing Arts area, and developed Programming Services. Currently, plans are underway for a new central library.

Frances Morrison Central Library is wheelchair accessible.
