1677 N. Main St.

— 1916 —

Diagonally across the street stood Walnut Creek's second library, built with a $2,500 Carnegie Library Foundation grant. In 1961 (after 45 years), the fast-growing city needed a larger library. This site was sold to help fund the new library, located two blocks away on Broadway.
