The George Washington Carver Branch has a unique place in Austin Public Library's history. The building which is now the Carver Museum was the original Carver Branch Library. In 1933 when a 26,000 square foot Italian Renaissance building replaced the original 1,800 square foot wooden frame building as the new Central Library, the wooden frame building was moved to 1165 Angelina St., resurfaced with brick and became APL's first branch, and the first branch to serve black citizens. Black citizens in East Austin had advocated strongly for a library in their community.
