The goals of the Lake Travis Community Library are to offer reading, viewing, and listening materials, as well as offer programs that stimulate thinking, increase knowledge, and improve leisure time. We provide access to quality electronic information resources and help develop technological and information-seeking skills. We also aim to be an easily accessible focal point of community life, connecting and uniting people in the Lake Travis area.
The Lake Travis Community Library was founded in 1985 and through the generosity of Lake Travis ISD, shared space with the Lake Travis High School Library for over 20 years. In May 2004, voters approved the formation of a Lake Travis Community Library District as a means to create public funding for a regional library. The library district includes Hudson Bend, Lakeway, The Hills, Spicewood and Briarcliff.
In March 2011, the library received a generous donation of land from Haythem Dawlett in the Tuscan Village development. The new library opened in February 2013. This 11,000 square foot building includes a meeting space for community use, dozens of public computers, study tables, a book sale area, a patio, and ample space for children’s programming. The Library also offers a bookmobile that travels throughout the district, meeting patrons at a variety of locations such as preschools, assisted living facilities, and community centers.
