Growing demands on the South Regional Library prompted the establishment of a new branch library in the western part of The Woodlands. January 2002 saw the acceptance of a Facilities Master Plan by the Planning Task Force. A $10 million bond issue was approved by the community in November 2002 for the replacement of the existing R.B. Tullis and West branch libraries and the addition of a new branch in the far western portion of The Woodlands. Design of the three new library facilities was initiated in 2003.

Land for the new branch in The Woodlands was donated by The Woodlands Operating Company. Ground breaking for the George and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library took place on July 21, 2004. The Grand Opening for the library was held on July 6, 2005.
