Check-in Before You Leave Home
Out of an abundance of caution due to Covid-19, Library branches may close without notice for cleaning. Please visit Up-to-Date Location Closures to check the status of your branch before arriving.
Built with funds from a $120,000 grant by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation, the East Washington Branch opened in 1911, six months before the opening of the city’s other remaining Carnegie Library, the Spades Park Branch. In 2017, a major renovation was completed to modernize the century-old building, which is included in the National Register of Historic Places.
