Provided By

Red River County Public Library

Since 1841, several Red River County libraries flourished and then abruptly terminated. Although previous libraries failed, the persistence of the community resulted in a permanent library situated in Clarksville, Texas. Today it is a source of community fortitude, enlightenment, and enjoyment, as well as the “Gateway to Texas” history and family genealogy for so many people in- and out-of-state.
