Despite its modest stature, the Hillyard Branch Library possesses an enormous amount of integrity, character and history. Built in 1929 by noted local architectural firm, Whitehouse & Price, the library has Italian Renaissance elements and impressive detailing in both the interior and exterior. Intricately carved terra cotta tiles and a large cartouche embellish the entrance while vaulted ceilings and hand-carved, hand-painted exposed timber beams accentuate the interior space. The library, which was open for over fifty years, served the community of Hillyard after its annexation to Spokane in 1924.
