Who We Are

History of the Stonewall County Library

The  first library began in 1917, sponsored by the Phoenix Club and housed in the Stonewall County Courthouse.  In 1940 the expanding work of the county made it necessary for the court to call for the room and the Library was moved to Hotel Stonewall until 1942 when the library was closed and all the suitable books were donated to the public school library.  During the sixties the Phoenix Club voted to cash their matured war bonds to purchase a building for the Little Library.  In 1966 the County Judge and County Commissioners voted to sponsor the library and the name was changed to Stonewall County Library.  The library was relocated several more times until 1983 when it was moved to a new and beautiful brick building housing the Stonewall County Activity Center as well as the library.  Stonewall County Library qualified for membership in the Big Country Library System in 1981 the same year Kewpie Duncan  became our first certified county librarian.  Many dedicated people freely gave of their time, energy and money to bring our library to the place it is today and for that we are truly grateful.
