Lyell Branch

The Lyell Branch Library is located in the Northwest Quadrant and serves a community of more than 30,000 residents. The building opened at its present location at the corner of Lyell Avenue and Avery Street in 1985; a meeting room was added several years later. The library features both on and off-street parking for patrons. The neighborhood association and other non-profit groups meet at the library throughout the year. A small Early Literacy Center provides a space for our young users to explore. A community garden space was started in the recent past.
