About Belle Isle Library

The Belle Isle Library opened at its current location on the corner of Northwest Expressway and Villa in September of 1963. In 1965, Belle Isle became part of the Metropolitan Library System. In 1988, federal grants allowed Belle Isle to add 6,600 square feet of usable public service space. Belle Isle is a full-service neighborhood library for families who live nearby and for businesses along the northwest commercial corridor. It is one of the busiest libraries in the Metropolitan Library System.

Book drop location: Drive-up on the west side of the building.
