Langston Hughes Center
Construction of the Langston Hughes Center, a former original Andrew Carnegie Library was completed in November 2008. The $5 million project included the renovation of the former library building and a 14,000 square foot addition. The project is home to McGregor PACE, an organization which provides innovative care for aging individuals and the Cleveland Clinic Community Health and Education Center (CCCHEC). The CCCHEC provides health screenings and health education services to residents at no cost and is open five days per week. The Dedication February 2009 signaled the completion of a critical corner of a larger development initiative at the northwest corner of East 79th and Quincy Avenue.
The Langston Hughes Center returns a historically significant neighborhood gem to productive reuse and was made possible through the support of 27 foundations, corporations and government entities and more than 100 individuals.
