Although the Pleasant Hill Branch of the Austin Public Library officially opened in South Austin on May 1, 1987, the Branch was actually founded back in 1966 with the opening of the Southwood Mall Branch in the Southwood Mall shopping center. In 1982, it was relocated to retail space within the Century South shopping center at the intersection of E. William Cannon and IH-35, and renamed the Century South Branch. Five years later, it moved again, but this time to a permanent facility. It was named Pleasant Hill since it stands on the hill that serves as the focal point and namesake for the area. In 2000 the interior and exterior  of the Branch was renovated and an outdoor “council ring” sitting area, peacefully situated under a shady cluster of oak trees, was added. The area has quickly become a popular spot for reading, storytelling, and just passing the time.
