From "The Nine Branch Libraries of the Public Library of Newark, N. J." by Eleanor Shane & John Cotton Dana, 1930

The Vailsburg Branch of the Newark Public Library was opened in October 1927 at a cost of $71,412. The building is a modified type of Georgian architecture, red brick with white stone trim.

The first floor houses the Adult Room and a work room. The second floor houses the Children's Room, a staff rest room and a kitchenette. Colored lithographs and other pictures decorate the walls from the collection of the Main Library. Each of the two rooms has a museum case which exhibits items from the NEwark Museum.
