Concerned by the lack of adequate library facilities in 1910, the Women's Improvement Club convinced the City Board of Trustees to contribute $2,000 and to apply to Andrew Carnegie for a $10,000 grant which they received on April 25, 1911. The land for the building was donated by local businessman A.B. McRae. The library was dedicated on October 12, 1912 and served the citizens of Roseville as a library and meeting place until November 7, 1982.

The Roseville Historical Society and the City of Roseville has restored and preserved this building for the continued use by its citizens of Roseville.
