Nestled between large pine and oak trees, Penn Lake Library opened in 1970 as the first free-standing library built in the City of Bloomington. The library was renovated in 2003. In the decades prior to 1970, the library was housed in various community locations, including Bloomington Schools Administration Building (1954-57) and Lincoln High School (1957-62.)
