Memorial Branch Library opened May 4, 1981, on land that was originally part of a city park. The organization Communities Organized for Public Service was instrumental in raising funds for the facility. 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. 

In 1995 the building was renovated and enlarged.
