The Morrow Branch storefront library opened in August 1975. The Morrow Junior Women's Club spearheaded the drive to add forth branch in Clayton County in the Morrow area. In 1975, the MJWC petitioned the county commission with the backing of other local civic groups. Temporary quarters were found in a former dress shop in what was then a small shopping plaza across the old Rex-Morrow Road from Morrow Senior High. In this temporary location there was only 1 room for a basic reference collection and some reading material. By May 17, 1978, the Morrow Branch had already outgrown the first location and moved to its second location at Lake Harbin Plaza, located at the intersection of Lake Harbin and Maddox Roads. In 1991 the Morrow Branch got its own building located around the corner from the shopping center on Maddox Rd. The design of the new library won a regional award from the American Institute of Architects and has been published in Architectural Record and two Japanese architecture journals, A + U and Global Architecture (GA Document 32).
