Welcome to the Library!

 



$250,000 Community Development Block Grant has been awarded to help with Cabool library expansion.
 
Texas County Library Foundation has accepted the grant, which was applied for through the City of Cabool.  An additional $200,000 for the construction project, plus other funds for furnishing will need to be funded by local donations.


The present library was constructed in 1986 and its use of space has changed alot since that time.  The present building has only around 1,600 square feet of space and lacks adequate space for programs and storage.  The Foundation plans to double the size of the existing library by building on to its front and renovating the current space.
In addition to having more room inside, there will be a new covered patio area outside.  


Donations toward the library expansion are still being accepted.  You can contact Molly Shelton Director of the Texas County Libraries, or any of the Texas County Library Foundation Board Members: Kent Williamson, Terry Jones, & Florence Cartwright of Cabool; Janet Fraley, Sally Smith, Brad Gentry, Peggy Holder, & Audrey Barnhart of Houston; Joni Appleton of Summersville; Linda Roberts of Licking & Gwen Ross of Eunice.
