Engage, enlighten, empower and inform

We are truly an essential, growing library system that is robust and forward-thinking. We’re constantly striving to improve service to our twin cities of Bryan and College Station, and the surrounding area. How are we doing this? We’re growing our collection of books and periodicals, improving customer service, enhancing our genealogy and history sources, adding new programs, gaining access to new reference resources and databases, and a whole lot more.

Through funding from the Bryan and College Station city governments, as well as federal, local and state grants, and donations from the Friends of the Library, we are able to “engage, enlighten, empower and inform life-long learners.”
