Minneapolis Central Library

Minneapolis Public Library was founded in 1885 and opened in the city’s first public library building on 10th Street and Hennepin Avenue in 1889. In 1961, a larger and more modern building was constructed where Minneapolis Central Library currently resides, between Hennepin Avenue and Nicollet Mall. Minneapolis Central Library as we know it today opened in 2006 and houses the largest collection of items in the Hennepin County Library system.
