A Washington County bookmobile served the area for several months until a space was found in the Milltowner Shopping Center for the library, which celebrated its grand opening in January of 1976. In 1978 the library moved into a new section of the shopping center, with 6,275 square feet of space. In May 1988 the library expanded to its present size of 15,400 square feet. In 2001, the library completed an expansion and remodeling that increased the total library size to 24,500 square feet. The expansion was done entirely with private fund-raising. In 2007, the library opened a branch in the Bethany community northwest of Cedar Mill, and expanded from 1200 to 4200 sq. ft. Plans are in progress to expand again in Bethany to 10,000 sq. ft. in 2019.
