The Riverview Branch Library was constructed in 1916 at an estimated cost of $26,000 and is one of three libraries in St. Paul which were designated by City Architect Charles A. Haulser, built by Cameron and Company in 1916, and financed by the Andrew Carnegie Corporation after neighborhood groups raised funds for the building lots. The other two Carnegie libraries, St. Anthony Park and Arlington Hills, are also Beaux Arts in style and in fact, the St. Anthony Park Library resembles a more ornate version of the design used in the Riverview Library. The Riverview Library is one of the last Carnegie libraries built in the country.
