Did you know that the San Leandro City Library was originally located in a handful of rooms in City Hall? In 1906, however, the city needed the extra space in City Hall to house refugees from a devastating earthquake, and the library was moved to the Gorman Building. Thanks to a generous donation from Andrew Carnegie in 1909, a beautiful new library was built. Next time you make a trip to the library, keep an eye out for the original Carnegie Library light posts and the gold “Public Library” lettering! #NationalLibraryWeek #MySanLeandro View on Instagram
