New Public Library

Current library building

In November 2017, voters approved $20 million in general obligation bonds for a new public library. The project will replace the current buillding with a facility designed to meet current and future needs, based on Texas Public Library Standards. The new library will provide for technological enhancements, flexible program space, and community meeting rooms that are not feasible in the existing structure.
