Benjamin L. Hooks Library Featured As Nation’s Most Innovative Public Library

Smithsonian Magazine – The Smithsonian Magazine recently featured the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library as the nation’s most innovative public library. While many cities have reduced library budgets as digital technology has become more dominant, Memphis has chosen instead to invest in their libraries and attendance in library programs has quadrupled in the last six years. Successful libraries across the country are embracing libraries as community centers. LRK designed Cloud901, prominently featured in the article, and provided architectural and interior design services for the overall Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.
