The Rowlett Public Library serves as a vital community center to provide free access to all information for all people.
The library began as a project of the Rowlett Home Demonstration Club with a small collection of donated books housed in one corner of a classroom in the Rowlett Public School, currently City Hall.
On October 1, 1996, the library opened its doors to a new 15,600 square foot facility at 3900 Main Street. The collection had grown to over 38,000 items and served a population of 31,141.
On May 1, 2015 the library moved to 5702 Rowlett Road. This current location is a temporary space while the city builds up downtown as a part of the Village of Rowlett development project. By the end of 2018 we’re looking forward to being back on Main Street along with new restaurants, shopping, and apartments.
