Garfield Park Branch Library
705 Woodrow Avenue
Santa Cruz
Built 1915

This Carnegie Library was designed by architect W. H. Weeks in the Classical Revival style.

Weeks also designed the Santa Cruaz Main Library and two more branch libraries, all funded by Carnegie and built between 1904 and 1921.

Of the four buildings, only the Garfield Park and Seabright branches survive. Garfield Park remains a branch library and Seabright houses the Santa Cruz Museum of Naural History.
