Albuquerque - Ernie Pyle Library

900 Girard SouthEast

The Ernie Pyle Library is the former home of famed war correspondent Ernie Pyle. The City of Albuquerque acquired the house from the Pyle estate and in 1948 opened it as a branch library. You'll find Pyle memorabilia alongside the library's books and media.

Every detail, including the picket fence built by Pyle and the grave marker of his dog, Cheetah, has been carefully preserved. In 1997 the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark on September 20, 2006.

That a charming library is situated in the historic house of one of America's greatest embedded journalists is surprising. That this little library has such a wonderful, eclectic selection is more surprising still. The staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Anything in the huge Albuquerque Public Library system is at your disposal here.
