The Little Walnut Creek Branch first opened its doors to the public on February 9, 1979 with a dedication ceremony following on May 17, 1979. Designed by architect James M. Patterson, the branch was built to serve the rapidly growing needs of North Austin and North Travis County. Funding for the branch was made possible through the 1972 City bond election, which also financed the construction of the Manchaca Road Branch in 1974 and the downtown Central Library in 1979. While rapid growth in North Austin brought a variety of challenges to Little Walnut Creek in the late 1980s and 90s, the branch continued to expand its role in the community by offering relevant programs and services.

The Little Walnut Creek Branch is located in Council District 4 of the City of Austin.
