Mott Branch opened in 1918 with funds from famous library philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Anna C. Mott, an active Toledoan who left a portion of her estate to the Library, is the namesake for the branch. The Library expanded twice, first in the mid-1970s and again in 1998.
Directly across the street at Smith Park, adjacent to the Martin Luther King Jr. elementary school, the Library constructed a new modern 21st-century branch. The new branch opened in June 2019.
