Library Facts

On Sunday, September 30, 1951, the new library building at 525 Main Street was dedicated by Mayor Vernon Langenbeck. The library was built at a cost of $140,000. Members of the Library Board at the time of the dedication were Pearl M. Jones, president, Berta Tovatt, J. K. McDonald, Edith Vavra, and G. H. Hasson. This library served as the main library from 1951 up until April 1975 when the Central Library was finished. The architectural firm of McLellan, MacDonald and Marcwith designed the Main Street Branch as part of the Civic Center. The 4,500 sq ft building resides on a 9,034 square feet lot. Main St Branch was renovated in 2008 with new carpeting, tile flooring, and paint. Wireless Internet services and an expanded computer lab were also added that year.

The Huntington Beach Public Library on Triangle Park, known as the Main Street Branch Library, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior on April 16, 2013.
