The Forest Park Branch Library, located in the Facility Master Plan Central North planning zone, is moving to a new location! Construction at the new site, 660 Northland Blvd., is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2023 or 2024.
The new building will be a Big Next Generation Library; a 25,000-square-foot facility built from the ground up. There will be 120 parking spots and the branch library will serve Forest Park, Springdale, and surrounding communities.
The new location was previously an office park in a residential area and is currently owned by the City of Forest Park. The site will be located near the post office as well as several restaurants and businesses. There is public transportation to the new location.
The current library location is planned to be taken over by the City of Forest Park.
