History & Architecture

Library services were first offered in this neighborhood at the Union Avenue Community Station’s storefront on Union Avenue in 1930. In 1938, Cleveland Public Library officially made Union a branch library, and the location primarily served children. A year later, the branch moved to another building located at 9319 Union Avenue.

Cleveland Public Library unveiled a new building for Union in 1982. The architects considered the aesthetic and residential tradition of the neighborhood in the design. The two entrances feature cupolas echoing church architecture, which admit patrons into the 9,100-square-foot facility.
