About the Almonte Library

In 2011, the Southern Oaks Library moved to the Almonte Shopping Center for a temporary location while their building on south Walker was being renovated. As a result of the high usage by new library users in this neighborhood, the Metropolitan Library System saw a great need for a permanent library in this community.

In February of 2013, the Almonte Library opened in a leased store front in the Almonte Shopping Center. This location enjoys a 12,500 square foot store front space for the library and has a capacity of 35,000 library materials with a seating capacity for 60 people, designated spaces for children and teens, a magazine reading area, and a multi-purpose room for small meetings.

Book drop location: In front of the entrance.
