Southeast Library sits on the east bank of the University of Minnesota and serves residents of the University community. The building was designed by master architect Ralph Rapson and originally functioned as a credit union for university and state employees. It opened as a library in 1967.
Previously, the East Side Branch at 22 University Ave. S.E. (1891-1904) and the Pillsbury Library at 100 University Ave. S.E. (1904-1967) served the University community.
