Come See Us at the New Downtown Walnut Creek Library!
The Walnut Creek Historical Society maintains its presence at the Downtown Walnut Creek Library in the space set aside for historical displays as well as for safe and secure storage of precious historical documents.
The permanent location for the display is located on the far north side of the second floor. It is comprised of three floor-to-ceiling cases situated next to broad windows overlooking Civic Park. The display cases face a fireplace and cushioned seats that harken back to those found in the old Carnegie Library. Established in 1916, the Carnegie was the city's second library, realized through the dedicated efforts of the Women's Improvement Club of Walnut Creek, the precursor of today's WCHS.
Raggedy Ann and Andy are the Holiday Feature coming soon. The photo on the steps of the main staircase of the Museum at Shadelands Ranch shows the dolls as they prepare for their trip to the library display case.
