Humanities Department - (901) 415-2726

Welcome to the Humanities Department at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.

We have a wide variety of information for both research and recreation. Here you will find your favorite fiction writers, the poems of T. S. Eliot, interior decorating or knitting tips, the aria you heard at Opera Memphis, pages of Picasso’s work in full color, the rules to bridge, the price of your old Nancy Drew collection, or a biography of your favorite musician, plus more. We strive to provide our customers with a rich tapestry of materials, as well as exciting programs, and links to local and national websites that support and enrich our collection. Scroll down to take a virtual tour and then come by and visit us in person to get the full Humanities experience. Discover what the Humanities department has to offer the Memphis community.
