Arlington Public Library

About the Library

A center for research in Arlington, the Arlington Public Library provides services relating to genealogy, adult learning, databases, and photos. Materials available to the community include traditional print books as well as audiobooks, eBooks, and magazines.


The photo collections of the Arlington Public Library document the development of Arlington, Texas as well as the history of the Arlington Police Department. The collections also include a selection of World War II era photographs and documents.

One of Arlington’s first local newspapers was The Arlington Journal, which began weekly publication in 1897. The Arlington Journal was added to The Portal to Texas History through the support of a TexTreasures grant awarded to the Arlington Public Library by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, supported through the IMLS Library Services & Technology Act.
