National Register of Historic Places in Alameda County
This Carnegie Library was one of four architecturally similar but varied branches built under a 1914 grant to the city of Oakland, in four different North and East Oakland neighborhoods, designed by Oakland architects of statewide prominence. This branch was designed by William H. Weeks and C. Christensen in the Classical Revival style.
It has served continuously as an Oakland Public Library branch from its construction to the present. Physically it is virtually unchanged both inside and out.
