From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The East San José Carnegie Branch Library is a Carnegie library in San Jose, California, USA. It opened in 1908, and is the last Carnegie library in Santa Clara County still operating as a public library.

Originally the only library in East San Jose, it joined the city of San Jose system when East San Jose was annexed by San Jose. The original building was renovated and added to in 1981. In 1990 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Construction of the renovated branch, adding onto the original historic structure rather than starting from scratch, was begun on February 14, 2008. The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly reopened branch took place at 11:00am on August 29, 2009. The Library features a Family Learning Center, Community Room, 21 computers, many family-oriented services and special language materials.
