The Manchaca Road Branch was originally built in 1974, not as a neighborhood branch, but as a city-owned regional branch for South Austin and Southwest Travis County. The Branch's "regional identity" was eventually dropped in the late 1980s as the Austin Public Library moved towards equalizing services among all branches. Since then, the Branch has expanded and deepened its role within the South Austin community.
