Although the Pleasant Hill Branch 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 because 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 were renovated and an outdoor council ring sitting area was installed, peacefully situated under a shady cluster of oak trees.

The Pleasant Hill Branch is located in Council District 2 of the City of Austin.
