Welcome to the Fremont Libraries Blog.
Fremont Main Library is the largest building, has the highest circulation in the Alameda County Library family, and shares its building with the Alameda County Library Administration. The current building was dedicated in 1989 and is home to the Maurice Marks Center for Local and California History, and the Fukaya public meeting rooms.
The Centerville Branch serves the residents of northern Fremont and the nearby communities of Newark, and Union City. Centerville is a small neighborhood library which boasts over 44,000 items in its modest 6,000 sq. ft. In 1976, Centerville had the distinction of becoming the first branch of the Alameda County system to have a computerized system for checking material out.
The Irvington Branch is a small neighborhood library located across the street from Irvington High School. This 5,760 sq. ft. library has over 37,500 items which include books, magazines and newspapers, videos, CDs, and audiocassettes. It has resided in its current location since July of 1985.
The Niles Branch of the Fremont Library began in 1890 when a circulating library of 145 volumes was bought by Niles citizens. Today, this 2,100 sq. ft. library has over 11,000 items and is the home of a sculpture called “Poppy Nymph” by Joseph Jacinto Mora.
