History of Larry J. Ringer Library

In 1986, the cities of Bryan and College Station signed an interlocal agreement for Bryan to operate a branch library in College Station. College Station’s first public library opened in 1987, and the present location opened in 1998. The College Station Public Library was renamed Larry J. Ringer Library in 2004 in honor of Larry J. Ringer, former College Station mayor who was very active in establishing a library in College Station.

Meeting Rooms

Non-profit groups can reserve our meeting room, which is equipped with 40 chairs and has standing room for 114. Our meeting room has a tiled floor, and refreshments are allowed. The meeting room may be booked up to three months in advance and can only be used by the same group once a month. Meeting rooms are checked out with your library card, and you will need to fill out a form. Ask at the Youth Services desk, or if no one is at that desk, go to the Reference Desk.

We also have two group study rooms at the back of the library. One is a small room (GS1) with a circular table that can accommodate about five people. The other (GS2) has two tables and enough room for about 15 to 20 people. Refreshments are not allowed in these rooms, and they are not accessible after hours. Call the Reference Desk if you would like to make a reservation (up to 3 times a week, up to a month in advance). Sign in at the Reference Desk; leave your library card with the librarian and take the blue or green card that says GS1 or GS2. The room can be used for two hours at a time and can only be used by the same person once per day.

For questions or concerns, call the library at (979) 764-3416 or contact Ringer Library Manager Jessica Jones by email or by phone at (979) 764-3625.
