National Register #90001810
Yolo Branch Library
37750 Sacramento Street
Built 1918

Yolo's Craftsman cottage Carnegie building was designed by William H. Weeks, more widely known for his many "Greek temple" Carnegies. It is one of only four California Carnegies which were constructed of wood and which incorporated some elements of the Craftsman style. Three are extant.

Despite its small size, it is one of the few Carnegie Libraries which continue to serve in their original capacity.
