The Wanda Coleman Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library was dedicated to the late Wanda Coleman, the woman often referred to as the “unofficial poet laureate” of Los Angeles, in November 2015 on behest of the many requests from her fans, friends, students, and family. A plaque was installed in her honor at the Dedication and Naming Ceremony. This library is one that Coleman frequented as a child.
