In 1916, the city began a library collection of loanable books at a general store. Outgrowing the space, the book collection moved to a newspaper office, a former church building, and a water company building. By 1956, it became an independent city library. The last home for the books before moving into the Cole Library included splitting the collection between two downtown buildings: the children's books were housed at an old church on Roosevelt Street, while the adult books were in a bank building on Elm Avenue (now Carlsbad Village Drive).
