Chicago Public Library - Hall Branch

George Cleveland Hall Branch was named in honor of renowned surgeon and chief of staff for Provident Hospital, Dr. George Cleveland Hall. He was the second African American appointed to serve on Chicago Public Library’s Board of Directors.

In 1984, George Cleveland Hall Branch was rededicated. The facility was renovated to include a young adult center. On July 7, 2000, the Friends of Libraries USA and Illinois Center for the Book designated George Cleveland Hall Branch as a literary landmark in recognition of the library’s promotion of African American literary culture by serving as a meeting place for such writers as Arna Bontemps, Gwendolyn Brooks, Lorraine Hansberry, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Claude McKay and Richard Wright.
