Branch History

South Branch Library opened its doors January 16, 1918, and was built with funds from famous library philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Through the years, South has been an important asset to the Old South End community, serving a multicultural and diverse neighborhood, specializing in the Latino culture with both English and Spanish collections. In 2004 the Branch relocated to its current location. This new modern building features glass walls and original Latino artwork. 

Hispanic Collection

The collection is comprised of a wide variety of non-fiction titles ranging from popular hobbies like gardening and crafts to the more research oriented medicine and philosophy. Many fiction titles are available as well, including classics and modern fiction, including books written by established Spanish language authors as well as translations from English popular fiction. The collection represents a diverse number of Spanish-speaking countries, and includes books by Latino authors living and writing in the United States, as well as authors from Latin America and Spain. A multitude of children's books are available and include some that were written originally in Spanish, as well as English translations. In addition, Latin music CDs, Spanish language videos and videos subtitled in Spanish are also available.
