Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center
The Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center exists to provide accessible resources, services, and events that encourage unity in the community and inspire lifelong learning.
At the heart of Giddings, Texas, there is a place that feels like home.
The Giddings Public Library and Cultural Center provides many services to residents living within Giddings and throughout Lee County that are not available anywhere else in the community.
In 1920, the Giddings Study Club voted to open a library, whose first home was inside the local branch of the Post Office. Each member of the study club donated a book to begin the library’s first collection.
Since its humble beginnings, the library has steadily grown to meet the needs of the community.
Today, the library enjoys almost 20,000 square feet of space for its collection of 35,000 books, magazines, and other items.
Thousands of people come to the library to utilize the print and electronic reference resources, access the Internet through the library’s computer lab, enjoy free Wi-Fi, participate in computer and Internet training, view one of the museum-quality exhibits, or attend one of the library’s many free community events.
