Through the years

The Friends of the EGR Library established itself in 1958 with the sole intention of bringing a library to East Grand Rapids.

Our first location opened in February 1959 and it has been the heart of our community since then!

Enjoy the tour! Join the Friends!

Contact us if you have photographs to add to our gallery. Thank you!
