Burleson Public Library


The Burleson Public Library opened its doors on January 17, 1971 in the historic Renfro-Clark House in Burleson. The home was purchased by a citizens group that had incorporated as Burleson Library, Inc. and the city agreed to be responsible for all library-related expenses while the corporation was responsible for refurbishing and maintenance of the historic property.

A bond election was passed by the citizens of Burleson for a larger, more modern facility that opened in March of 1980, but the library eventually outgrew that building as well. In June of 1996, after a special election was passed for the construction of municipal facilities, the library moved to 248 S.W. Johnson where it is still in operation today.


The Burleson Public Library’s mission is to serve as a vital community center providing materials and services to help community residents obtain information meeting their personal, educational, cultural, and professional needs.
