About the Library

The Centerville Library (at approximately 6000 square feet) opened in 1976 and is in north Fremont in the Brookvale Shopping Center. The building has a noteworthy carpet, a dedicated play space for young children, an expansive brick patio behind the library, and a small playground is next to the library in the park. A learning garden will be completed in Winter 2021 which will include a seed lending library. The collection size is approximately 34,000 items ranging from books, DVD’s, CD’s, magazines and includes English, Chinese, Spanish, and Hindi titles. Roughly 72% of the items checked out at Centerville are from the children’s materials, and the library hosted more than 280 programs in 2019.
