The staff at the AARLCC is very professional and caring. The staff set up the class room for me to teach the computer class. This library is the best place to have and event. The library is a great learning environment. If you want to have a meeting and event here at the AARLCC you will not be disappointed. Terrence... More

The facility is beautiful, the staff is nasty and unaccommodating. This is NOT the place to have a meeting. If you want convenience, don't come here. Not much in the way of displays, really not worth the time.

We like to find free public attractions when visiting new places, and the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center was a good find! The building is modern and the sweeping staircase, tile, and sculpted statues and artifacts make it seem like an art museum as well. We enjoyed randomly browsing the hundreds of books and pieces of information in their... More

The African-American Research Library is a great place to visit. Located in the Sistrunk area of the city, the library has interesting exhibits that rotate and lots of events throughout the year. If you're interesting in history, African-American history or libraries then this beautiful facility is a must see.
