The original Hawthorne Library was just a one-room building on Lafayette Avenue, which now houses the administrative offices of the library and old periodicals and newspapers in the basement. It was built in 1931.

The library changed its name to the Louis Bay 2nd Library to honor longtime mayor Louis Bay. An addition to the library, which is now the main library and the Children’s Wing, was designed by local architect Larry Tromeur. He had been part of firm Neil Greydanus in Hawthorne, and later Jim Pipens, and opened his own firm, Associated Architects, in Paterson. Tromeur was inspired by the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Meis van der Rohe. He also designed the municipal building in Hawthorne and the Wachovia Bank building.
