    is the location of the library”

    Albert Einstein

    Our Story

    On the site of Walnut Creek’s first library, a Carnegie library that opened in 1916 and operated until 1961, chef-owner Michelle DuRye has taken the vintage library and turned it into a must-stop spot for residents and visitors of Walnut Creek. Library on Main is a casual downtown Walnut Creek eatery serving New American small plates and craft cocktails, perfect for occasions from date night to a post-work happy hour.
