The Central Library and all RPL branches are currently limited to curbside service. Please click here for details.
Originally built in 1986 as the Highland Branch of the Rochester Public Library System, the library was renamed in March 2016 in honor of Rochester resident and renowned abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Centrally located in the Southeast Quadrant near the South Wedge, Highland Park, and Lilac Neighborhoods, Frederick Douglass Community Library focuses on purchasing popular and current books, DVDs, CDs, books on CD, and magazines. The library is committed to the enrichment of our community and patrons by offering access to Monroe County Library System databases, as well as free Internet and Wi-Fi.
