Historic Properties of Spokane
Carnegie Library, East Side Branch
The East Side Branch Library was built in 1913 with funds provided by United States philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, and is a tangible testament to his worldwide influence. The structure was designed by prominent Spokane architect Albert Held and was built by Spokane contractor Galbraith & Sons. For 66 years, the East Side Branch served the East Central Spokane community and residents in the Spokane Valley.
The East Side Library is listed on the National Register of Historic places as part of a multi-property nomination that includes all of the Carnegie Libraries in Washington state (this also includes the Heath Branch, the Main Branch, and the North Monroe Branch in Spokane).
