Carnegie Public Library, Hollister, California

[LIB11134] The low, one story Hollister Carnegie building, Classical in style, is constructed of concrete scored to resemble granite block. This contributes a sense of stability in an area where earthquakes are not rare. Set far back from the street and at some distance from adjacent buildings, its site on Fifth Street between San Benito and Monterey streets is part of downtown Hollister's designated National Historic District. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.  [Website]

Currently the building is operated as the City Hall.
