Whitewright Public Library

Situated near the Bois d' Arc Creek, Whitewright was founded in 1878 by investor and financier William Whitewright, Jr. The Whitewright Public Library opened in 1967, spurred by a 1966 presentation by the Whitewright Friday Literary Club, titled, "Does Our Town Need a Library?" Since then, the library serves a population of just over 2,000, from the city of Whitewright, as well as from wider Fannin and Grayson Counties.
