The Wake Forest Community Library closed on September 2, 2017 for expansion.

The Library is located at the southern edge of Wake Forest’s downtown and serves the growing communities of Wake Forest, Rolesville and North Raleigh. It resides on a campus shared by Kiwanis Park, an EMS station and the Wake County Northern Regional Center. It originally opened in 1996. In 2013 the library underwent two months of renovations, which included new paint, carpet, furnishings and a new floor plan. The expansion project is a part of a 45 million dollar bond approved by voters in 2007 to build, expand, renovate or repair libraries.
The Library will increase from 5,000 sf to 9,000 sf. The expanded library will offer youth programs, a collection of between 40,000 and 50,000 books, 16 public computers and WiFi. It will feature an increased youth programming space, and enlarged reading and study areas for both children and adults. 
Wake County Public Libraries has 21 other locations and patrons are encouraged to visit them while the Wake Forest Community Library is being expanded. The closest library to Wake Forest is Northeast Regional Library. This location is a full service library offering programming, public computers and books for all ages.
The expanded library is scheduled to open in early 2019. We will update this page as more information becomes available.
