The Library in Hollister

When I was a kid, the front of the library was landscaped with bushes that had flowers that smelled like hot dogs. Really, they did. The bushes were where the outside wall is now. The foyer, bathrooms, and meeting room were all added in the 1980s.

The San Benito County Free Library is a consolidation of the county and Hollister  City public libraries, which occurred in 1959. The City Hall building was once the Hollister City Library that was built in 1919 from money funded by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation.
