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. A bond was passed in 2008 to expand the library, and construction began in 2018. After renovations and expansion, Ringer Library reopened on September 23, 2019.

Meeting Rooms

Ringer Library has one large meeting room that can be split into two rooms that will each accommodate 100 people. There are two conference rooms (group study rooms) near the back of the library that will each accommodate approximately 10 people. There are five individual study rooms near the front of the library that each have a single table and could fit 1 to 4 people. To schedule a room, please call (979) 764-3416 and ask for Lisa. If not reserved, the study rooms are currently available to walk-ins. All of the rooms are for individual or nonprofit use only, and current library cards are needed for reservations.

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