National Register of Historic Places in Colusa County
The architectural firm of Stone and Smith designed this Classical Revival Carnegie Library which is faced with sandstone from nearby Sites Quarry. Completed in 1906 at a cost of $13,158, it was the third of thirteen Carnegie libraries built in the Sacramento Valley and the only one built in Colusa County.
The building was a library from 1906 to 1964 when it became the Police Station for the City of Colusa.
The Will Semple Green House is visible behind the police cars.
