A photograph of the original Mill Valley Library under construction in 1911. It was located at 52 Lovell Avenue.
The library at 52 Lovell Avenue was closed in 1966, and a new library was built at 375 Throckmorton Avenue, which is where the library is still located. The library building at 52 Lovell was sold in 1966, and it is currently being used as a single family residence. This is a recent photo of 52 Lovell Avenue.
