The Court House Branch of the Minneapolis Public Library opened September 1, 1906. The branch replaced an earlier service point in City Hall. Emma Nilsson was the first branch librarian. Since the Main Library was located south of downtown, the Court House Branch was the main service point for downtown library patrons until the opening of the Business Branch in 1916. The Court House branch closed in 1920.
