After breaking ground on March 31, 2023, the brand-new East Independence Branch is now complete! The new 12,500 sq. ft. facility is located at 4505 Little Blue Pkwy, Independence, Mo., just south of I-70. 

Your New Library Experience Is Here!

The 12,500-square-foot East Independence Branch includes:

  • A community room
  • Two meeting rooms
  • A children's area
  • Outdoor space

The construction of this new branch building was part of the Library’s Capital Improvement Plan, which was made possible by funds from Proposition L. The architects were SAPP Design (Springfield, MO) and Helix Architecture and Design, Inc. (Kansas City, MO), and the construction firm for all projects was JE Dunn.
