Provided By

Red River County Public Library

Since 1841, the community of Red River County has seen several public and private libraries flourish, and then just as abruptly, terminate. The culprit of each curtailment was usually due to economic hardships where financial support was withdrawn. Such is the case of the stately 1905 Carnegie Library, which closed after a severe crop failure in the area. Although previous libraries failed, the persistence of the community to rebuild after each setback attests to the idea of a library, and the confidence in the contributions such an institution makes to the people it serves.
