In 1904 the Uphams Corner Branch moved from a temporary store-front location on Dudley Street to the two-year-old municipal building on Columbia Road. Upon entering the building, the adult room was on the left, a floor above the swimming pool, and the children's room used a common area on the right side of the hall. When the swimming pool developed leaks and fell into disuse for some time, the children's room took occupancy in this space. It maintained a separate entrance and circulation desk until the 1970s. After renovations to the building in 1989, only one entrance to the branch remained - through the adult room. Many residents still recall the swimming pool and public showers of their childhood.
