Over the years, the library has seen several renovations and is currently in the final stages of a major project to make it a more inviting space for all to use. Renovations on the second floor have been completed while work continues to finish the first floor, including the new Laney-Walker Boulevard entrance.

In the future, the library will display some of the history of Greenblatt and surrounding campuses, including items from the Medical College of Georgia and Dental College of Georgia.

Known as the Medical College of Georgia Library or MCG Library for more than 150 years, the library was officially renamed in 1988 as the Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library. Greenblatt was an internationally known endocrinologist and professor emeritus of MGC who passed away in 1987.
