Welcome to the Berryessa Branch Library, which has served the Berryessa area and the northeastern perimeter of San José since 1968. The current facility, which opened in 2005, was the first library expansion project completed under the Branch Library Development Program. The library provides educational resources and recreational opportunities serving the needs and interests of the local community, featuring one of the largest Chinese language branch collections. Free WiFi and Internet access is available during library hours. Berryessa Branch is located adjacent to NoblePark and a few blocks from the Berryessa Community Center.
Berryessa Branch Library is located in northeastern San José and serves a population of 70,060 residents. Our service area is ethnically diverse, with the largest Asian population in the City, nearly 50%. Children constitute about a third of the area's population. Berryessa is also an economically diverse area; it has a solid middle class community, a number of new immigrant communities (particularly Chinese and East Indian), and several low-income communities.
