The Twin Oaks Branch was built to replace the former Twin Oaks Branch, which was located in a lease space since its inception in 1956. Since 1992, the branch had been in a storefront space in the Twin Oaks Shopping Center located near the intersection of South Congress Avenue and Oltorf Street. In the 1998 voters approved the funding to build a permanent branch to serve this area of the City. The new Twin Oaks Branch opened in August of 2010. This modern and sustainable branch, designed by Hatch + Ulland Owen Architects and built by Jamail & Smith Construction, features a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) template that incorporates recycled bricks for the exterior, recyclable carpeting and furniture fabrics, and a sophisticated lighting system that automatically dims when there is sufficient daylight. A mobile, Black Well, made by artist Stephanie Strange hangs in the entrance of the branch. This piece, which incorporates parts of forty typewriters, is part of the Austin Art in Public Places program.

The Twin Oaks Branch interior design scheme earned a First Place Commercial Interior Design Award for Sustainable Design in 2010.

The Twin Oaks Branch is located in Council District 9 of the City of Austin.
