Library Information

The Mapleton Branch's first home was a small library on 10th Avenue that opened in 1934. A year later, it moved to a storefront on 18th Avenue, with books and staff transferred from the former Astral Branch. The collection grew rapidly, and in 1955, a new branch opened on the corner of 17th Avenue and 60th Street.

The 2005 renovation features an updated children's program area; new computers and wireless public Internet access; and overall enhancements including new heat and air systems, new windows and furniture, and improved building appearance and function.
