Our History

The Ralston Women’s Club opened the first Ralston Public Library in the Stewart Real Estate Office in 1922. Two years later, the library was moved to City Hall. In 1963, the library was moved to a new facility near Oak Park at 7900 Park Lane. Continued growth and increased usage led to the construction of the current library in 1999.
