Bessie Coleman Branch was opened and dedicated on March 27, 1993, replacing both the Washington Park Branch, a one room facility in Woodlawn Branch, and the Washington Park Branch, a smaller storefront. The branch was named after pioneering pilot Bessie Coleman, who was the first African American and one of the first American women to receive a pilot's license.
