Moore Memorial Public Library

The history of Moore Memorial Public Library dates back to 1928, when the Texas City Civics' Club and the City of Texas City arranged to provide a small library within the newly built City Hall. The Library has grown over the years and now hosts an Archive that documents, preserves and curates archival material representing the history of Texas City, the surrounding community, and Galveston County. In 2006, the Library received the Rescuing Texas History Grant for its effort in preserving historical materials. Contributions found within the Moore Memorial Library Portal collections include newspapers, photos, postcards and manuscript materials.
