As part of the year-long 200 Years of Douglass celebrations, the Rochester Public Library's Local History and Genealogy Division has put together a mini exhibit, "Frederick Douglass's Rochester: Mapping His Tracks in Our City." The display spotlights such notable spaces as the Talman Building, where he founded his Abolitionist paper the North Star, and Corinthian Hall, where he gave one of his most famous speeches, "What to a Slave is the Fourth of July?" And visitors can take away a provided exhibit pamphlet that delineates a self-guided tour of Freddy D's stomping grounds.

Through August 31 at Central Library's Rundel Memorial Building, 115 South Avenue, floor 2. Free. Library hours are Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Tuesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thurs., 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 428-8370; roccitylibrary.org/location/central.
