History

Located in Golden Valley Village Hall from 1958 to 1971, Golden Valley Library opened in its current location in 1971. The library is situated in a park-like setting overlooking scenic Bassett Creek. It was the first library to be funded entirely by Hennepin County after the State Legislature authorized the county’s long-range building program in 1969. The current library was first dedicated in 1971 and again in 2011.
