Between 1960 and 1970, Greenwood grew from a burg of 7,200 to a bustling suburb of 26,265.

In 1974, the Library rose to meet the challenge of the increased population with a construction project.

The project expanded the building by 21,500 square feet, added meeting rooms on the ground level, and installed an elevator.
