בית האזרח וספריית דביר ביאליק
בנייתו החלה בשנת 1936, כמרכז תרבות.
לאחר שהבנייה הופסקה והמבנה עמד נטוש וחשוף, הועלה רעיון להפכו כאגף נוסף לבית הספר העממי הסמוך. הרעיון לא מומש.
בשנת 1944, הושלם הבניין.חלקו הקדמי היה ל"בית האזרח", והתקיימו בו הרצאות בנושאי דת, ספרות ופוליטיקה. לעיתים אף שימש כאולם אירועים ושמחות. בחלקו האחורי בן שתי הקומות, נוסדה בשנת 1945 הספרייה הציבורית הראשונה בישוב, ספריית "דביר ביאליק" (שהפכה לספרייה המרכזית ברחוב חיבת ציון).
בשנות ה-50 הורחב "בית האזרח" ונוספו לו עוד שלוש קומות.

Beit HaEzrach (The Citizen’s House) and Dvir Bialik Library
The building’s construction started in 1936, as a cultural center. After construction was discontinued, and the structure stood abandoned and bare, it was suggested that it be turned into an additional wing of the elementary school next door. The idea never came to fruition.
In 1944, the building was completed. The front section became "Beit HaEzrach" (The Citizen’s House) where lectures about religion, literature and politics were hosted. At times, it was even used as a hall for events and functions. The first public library of the Yishuv, the "Dvir Bialik" library (which became the central library on Hibbat Zion road) was established in its two-story back section in 1945. During the 1950’s, "Beit HaEzrach" was expanded and three additional floors were added to it.
