Carnegie Libraries in the

The Bungalow/Craftsman styles are rarely associated with civic buildings. In California, however, four Carnegie libraries share with bungalows their Craftsman detailing, often present in the projecting rafters and wood columns, as well as their affinity for a milder climate, their lower cost and smaller scale. Extant are Yolo, Riverbank, and Orosi. Santa Cruz/Eastside, no longer extant, and Yolo were almost exact duplicates. All were completed with grants of only $3,000, Yolo in 1918 and the other three in 1921.
