In 1911, the Cleveland Park School and Community Association established a temporary library in the John Eaton School.  Miss Clara Herbert was the first librarian.

Today the John Eaton Elementary School remains in operation.  A photo of the original Cleveland Park Library at the school is featured in Cleveland Park by Paul K. Williams.
