When the original Cypress Hills Library opened on the ground floor of the Cypress Hill Houses in 1955, most patrons were residents of the housing development. A new branch was constructed in 1995 to serve a growing community; distinctive features of the facility include entrance gate artwork by artist Rolando Briseno, a skylit atrium and a metal-clad roof.
