In 1913, the Village of Dundee contracted with the City of Omaha for use of the Omaha Public Library. Dundee was annexed by Omaha in 1915. As the community grew, so did its demands for a neighborhood library.

By 1973, the Recreation and Education Association of Dundee was formed to champion the cause, and it set its sights on a vacated Hinky Dinky store at 50th and Underwood Streets. A petition circulated to gather community support, and more than 2,500 signatures were collected in favor of the new facility.
