  • Auburn Avenue Research Library



    Located in the historic Sweet Auburn district, the Auburn Avenue Research Library is as historic as the collections it houses. In 1921 the original Auburn Avenue Research Library structure located at 333 Auburn Ave., was the first public library branch for African-Americans in Atlanta. The Auburn Avenue Research Library has more than 20,000 books and 600-plus manuscript collections along with artifacts, recordings, oral histories, periodicals, 250,000 photographs and other items. Some of the library's collection traces its roots to the Negro History Collection of Non-Circulating Books that was first organized in 1934.

    Also at the Auburn Avenue Research Library are 800 works of art representing African and African-American artists. Literary holdings include pieces by Harlem Renaissance writers. Auburn Avenue Research Library offers lectures, workshops and other programs.

    Tours are available by reservation only and must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
