The San Pedro Branch Library opened on August 5, 1930. It was the first branch library built in
San Antonio and the only one built in a public park, San Pedro Springs Park, the oldest municipal
park in Texas and the second oldest in the USA after Boston Commons. Its architecture is Spanish
in style with a vaulted ceiling complemented by architectural motifs. Two large archways
open into separate wings housing adult and juvenile collections in a very intimate setting. Two
back rooms were originally screened-in porches. Atlee & Robert B. Ayers were the architects.
The block house, directly behind the library, probably dates from the early 1700s, while the
bandstand and grotto were probably built in the 1890s.
In 2007 a community block grant and the support of the community allowed for a total renovation
of the building restoring it to near its original condition.
Parking for approximately ___ cars.
