Come and visit us at our newly remodeled library which now features a meeting room that can accommodate groups under 30 people.  The library regularly holds Storytimes for babies and preschoolers, free computer and ESL classes for the public as well as fun and educational programming for all ages in various fields such as: literacy, health, art, and technology.  The Jacinto City Branch Library also has a Facebook page where you can keep up with our current events.

The Friends of the Jacinto City Branch Library sponsor an ongoing book sale in the library. They accept books and audiovisual materials in good condition for these sales. All money raised is used to support library programming.

Jacinto City Branch Library is a cooperative effort between the City of Jacinto City and the Harris County Public Library system (HCPL). The city built and maintains the facility, while HCPL furnishes staff and materials. This cooperative agreement started in 1957, when a local resident, Mrs. Dorothy Bowyer, spearheaded the effort to obtain a library for Jacinto City. Mrs. Bowyer also served as the Branch Librarian until she retired in1989. The current building was built in 1992, as a memorial to former Jacinto City mayor Albert “Bert” Holder, to replace the original which still stands on Mercury Drive.
