This library was established in 1988 as the Mulgrave Shire Council Bicentennial Library. It was the library headquarters of the former Mulgrave Shire Council. In 2006 Cairns Libraries' Support Service unit was relocated to the Library. Support Services unit provides technical support for all areas of Cairns Libraries.

The library was fully renovated and upgraded in 2007/2008. The refurbished library was officially launched on 18 January 2008.
