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.
