The Allendale Township Library was founded in 1966 due to the efforts of the Lion's Club, Chamber of Commerce, and Allendale Township. It was first housed in a small room in the Allendale Township Hall and was overseen by Mrs. Don Stevens. The library has since been housed in offices at the State Farm Building at 6410 Lake Michigan Drive (1987-1999) and then at its present location at 6175 Library Lane (2000-present).
