Set near scenic Minnehaha Creek, Washburn Library serves the neighborhoods of southwest Minneapolis. It is named for local flour magnate and U.S. Senator William D. Washburn (1831-1912). Library service to this area began in 1939 with a bookmobile route. The library’s current location opened in 1970. It was renovated in 2014.
