The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library is proud to announce its 20th anniversary program celebrating the opening of the Art Tatum African-American Resource Center at Kent Branch Library, 3101 Collingwood Blvd. The event is scheduled from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, December 5 at Kent Branch.

For the past two decades, the Tatum Center has been a beacon of American culture and history.

In honor of this occasion, local playwright Dr. Imelda Hunt is scheduled to present a theatrical dramatization, A Jazz Revue: Tatum at Chicken Charlie’s, which highlights the life and times spent in Toledo of the late jazz pianist Art Tatum (1909-1956). You won’t want to miss this exciting production.

Event participants can also review the history of the Tatum Center by browsing through photos, newspaper clippings and more. The preserved Tatum Center’s collection of local history will allow participants to see many familiar faces, articles and projects.

This 20th anniversary celebration will include refreshments and is open to the public.

Help us celebrate this community treasure. We hope to see you there!
