More about Memorial

Welcome to Memorial Branch Library


The Memorial Branch is a beautiful library that features books, DVDs, audiobooks, music CDs, and more for checkout.  It also features public computers, Wi-Fi, laptops, and study rooms, along with a spacious meeting room and dedicated kids and teen spaces.

If you have any questions, give us a call at (210) 207-9140.


Memorial Branch Library opened May 4, 1981, on land that was originally part of a city park. The group Communities Organized for Public Service was instrumental in raising funds. The Library Board of Trustees had originally voted to name the branch for José Bernardo Maximiliano Gutiérrez de Lara, governor of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas and opponent of Texas independence. However, the neighboring community strongly requested that the name be changed to honor San Antonio’s war dead, and the Board subsequently voted to make that change. 

Memorial Branch Library reopened on February 25, 2023, after an extensive renovation.  Added features include a lobby, new furniture and carpet, a refreshed collection, and a LEARN Center that can help you with digital literacy, job searching, and English/Spanish Second Language classes.  The library also has newly dedicated kids and teen spaces, plus a spacious meeting room for the community.
