About Us

Who are we?

At the heart of Giddings, Texas, there is a place that feels like home. The Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center located at 276 North Orange Street provides many free and low cost services to residents living within Giddings and throughout Lee County that are not available anywhere else in the community. Our state of the art facility also houses many records and resources to meet the diverse needs of our patrons. 

The library system holds over 35,000 materials including books, audio books, movies, magazines, and records available for check-out.

Thousands of people come to the library to utilize our print and electronic reference resources, access the Internet through the Library’s computer lab, enjoy free Wi-Fi access, participate in computer and Internet training, view one of our museum quality exhibits, or attend one of the Library’s many free community events.

Our friendly and professional staff is eager to serve you. Welcome to the Giddings Public Library! 

  A Message from the Director: 

How do you measure the impact a library has on its community? There are countless numbers and statistics reports I could present to you, but after 36 years here at the Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center, I have found some better ways. I measure it by the number of people who walk in with a problem, and walk out with a smile. I measure it by the gratitude we receive from our elderly patrons, who tell us they don't know what they would have done without our help on the computer. I measure it as I watch the children I knew grow into adults, who now bring their children to my library. At the Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center, we make it our mission to bring art, literature, and knowledge to Giddings and Lee County in a place that feels like home. From our museum quality exhibits to our state of the art community room we have a way to meet the needs of everyone who walks through our doors. Our 35,000 plus piece collection houses a diverse array of material on any subject, whether it be by book, audio recording, microfilm or other! Our comfortable computer lab or one of our private study rooms are available at your disposal. My friendly and knowledgeable staff is waiting to welcome you. Come, put your feet up in one of our cozy lounges and discover what the best library in Texas has to offer you!
