Located in Edmondson Village, the library also serves the Allendale and Rognel Heights areas.
The Edmondson Avenue branch opened on July 31, 1952 after lengthy campaigning by Edmondson residents. A citizens group formed the Neighborhood Library Group in 1943, which operated out of lending stations in various buildings until the permanent branch was constructed.
