The remodeled Allendale Branch building, created as an isolation hospital in the 1920s, opened for library business in 1951. The adobe ranch-style building features a fireplace, wide windows with one door opening onto a fenced patio and the other to a picnic park area with playground. The small branch lacks a separate meeting room. Allendale Branch Library is a unique and exemplary neighborhood center, combining school, library, park and recreational resources.

Allendale Branch Collection
The Allendale Branch is a small branch with over 41,000 items in its collection. The library has a strong current popular fiction collection including bestsellers, science fiction, and romances. Additional strengths of the book collection are current biographies, paperback classics, and a growing young adult collection, including Cliffs notes, financial aid guides, and college guides. In 2014, Allendale debuted a special culinary collection.
Allendale’s location, adjacent to the Blair Middle and High School campuses, make it a popular place for kids of all ages. In addition to its general community audience, Allendale offers many services and events geared especially to kids age 12-17.
