The library originally opened in a corner of the West University Community Center in 1942. During World War II it was moved to a temporary home in the field office of Reed and Yancey Realtors (northwest corner of Rice and Auden). In 1963, the library moved into a new 6,100 square foot facility at its current location at 6108 Auden. [Gegemen, June A. Stepping Back in Time: A History of West University Place. Houston: D. Armstrong Co. 1999]  The library was renovated in 1984, 2006, and again in 2016.  Today the library works with the City of West University to present programs in other city buildings, such as the Scout House and the Community Center.
