The Charles S. Greene Library (aka the Oakland Carnegie public library) was the second Main Library in the City of Oakland, California, from 1902 to 1951. Currently it is the home of the African American Museum and Library at Oakland (AAMLO). Dedicated in 1902 as the Oakland Public Library, this was the first Carnegie Library built in the city. The Italian Renaissance style building was designed by architects Bliss and Faville, with A.E. Barrett of San Francisco as the contractor.
