In 1911, Andrew Carnegie, Scottish industrialist, businessman, and major philanthropist, endowed upon City of Oroville $10,000 for the construction of a public library building. The building was constructed and the Oroville Public Library was ready for public use in 1912.

Oroville Public Library is one of the thirty-six Temple-Style Classical Revival California Carnegie buildings completed between 1903 and 1918, of which only 18 are standing today. The library was designed by architect William Henry Weeks, who designed twenty-two libraries between 1902 and 1921 (spanning nearly the entire Carnegie Libary period).
