Stephenville Public Library

The Stephenville Public Library was started in 1903 by the Twentieth Century Club, a local women’s organization. Club volunteers ran the library from their homes, and various locations in the city. In 1919, the Twentieth Century Club raised enough money to buy a lot and a library was constructed at the corner of Green and Erath Streets in 1924. This location was the site of the log cabin Major Erath lived in while laying out the city of Stephenville. In 1968 the United States Government offered the Post Office building, built in 1935, for sale to the city for $1.00, if the city would use it for educational purposes for thirty years.
