The Avondale Public Library System dates back to 1930 when fifty books were placed on the stage of Avondale Elementary School No.1 to start a library. Up until 1941, this library served as both a school library and a public library before becoming a student-only space. When Mary Ludlow, an educator at Avondale Elementary School No. 1, was appointed librarian, the library's opening hours increased from two hours per week to being open from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm every day during its first ten years. The first Dewey Decimal System has implemented between 1938 and 1940 thanks to her efforts and the assistance of two young women from the Works Progress Administration.

Fundraising for a new library started in 1972 after it was determined that a new facility was necessary. The Library Board of Trustees, led by Mrs. Pauline Hazelton, raised money to build this new library. $36,651.28 had been collected as of July 2, 1974. On December 5, 1974, work on the new Old Town Library on Western Avenue was finished, and on January 27, 1975, it was made public. The library's collection had grown to over 9,000 items by the 1980s, and in 1984 Santa Claus visited close to 1,000 library users and community members, both young and old, via chopper. The library was once more expanded in 1985 thanks to a $285,000 contract that the City of Avondale awarded.
