The East Forest Park Branch Library was officially opened in April of 2000. Neighborhood groups had been asking for a branch in the East Forest Park section of Springfield since the early 1950s. A former video store was creatively redecorated into a beautiful library branch located in a mini mall with free parking and is fully handicapped accessible.
