Castroville Public Library

Castroville Public Library was established in 1963 by members of the Home Demonstration club. These founding members; Kay Tschirhart, Susie Kemph, Yvonne Tschirhart, and Helen Ann Boehme founded the library with donated books in a room located at city hall that is now used as city council chambers. This group enlisted the late Helen Murrah to be the first librarian, and she held this position for ten years. The library remained at city hall until 1980 when it was apparent that more space was needed for this facility. In 1980, The Castroville Public Library moved to 802 London Street, which is the current location.

Castroville Public Library is a city library for Castroville, Texas. The library provides free services for the city of Castroville. The population for the City of Castroville is 3028 as reported by the Census Bureau.
