The Windsor Park Branch opened on July 15, 2000 but Library services to the area actually began in the late 1950s with bookmobile deliveries to the Windsor Village Shopping Center on Berkman Drive. This was followed in 1963 by the opening of the Windsor Village Station in a 2,000 square foot retail site within the Shopping Center. But as the area grew, so did the need for a permanent, more spacious building. A proposal to build one failed in the 1966 bond issue, and though funds were approved in 1982 due largely to the lobbying efforts of the Windsor Park Neighborhood Association, the funds were used to build the University Hills Branch. Finally, in 1992, a bond issue passed, giving the go-ahead on six new branches and, in July of 2000, APL celebrated the grand opening of the Windsor Park Branch.
