In 1976 the City of Forest Grove was awarded a federal grant to construct a Municipal Services Center that would include a new library. The Forest Grove City Library was dedicated in October of 1978, and currently has 11,000 square feet. In 1998 voters approved a $5 million bond measure to expand the library 15,000 sq. ft.
