Timpson Public Library

History

Concerned citizens of the Timpson area had on several occasions attempted to establish a library for the Timpson area. Through a series of state legislative decisions, the physical building of the library was funded.

Soon, work began to establish the underpinnings of the library through diligent volunteers who used a donated computer to catalog donated books received from other libraries.

Finally in June of 2003, staffed with all volunteers, the Timpson Public Library opened it doors for business in 1,000 square feet of rented space at 176 Bremond Street on the Timpson Square.

The Timpson Library, in coordination with its genealogical society, was awarded a Tocker Foundation grant to make issues of the Timpson & Tenaha News available on The Portal to Texas History.
