Built in 1971, Southdale Library serves the residents of Edina, Bloomington, Richfield and Minneapolis with its extensive collections, meeting spaces, and community-responsive programming.
In addition to the Library, the 7.69-acre site previously also housed a Resident & Real Estate Service Center (relocated to Southdale Center in 2016) and district courts (relocated to other county facilities in 2019).
Planning for a new library building began in 2015, was paused in 2020, and resumed in 2023. Hennepin County will build a new library on the existing site.
