Begun by Home Demonstration Ladies in 1948, the library has grown from a small room in the county courthouse to the present library/museum facility. The library is funded by the City of Carrizo Springs and Dimmit County. 1980 marked the building of the present library. 2002 the Wade House Memorial Museum addition was added and the entire library was renovated. New furniture was bought with a Tocker Grant. In 2007 the old conference room was transformed into the Children’s Library with help from local donations and a Tocker Grant for furniture. The library has 3 full-time employees and volunteers that run the day-to-day operations. The library is fully accredited by the Texas State Library with access to databases and Inter Library Loan. Through numerous grants (TIF, Gates, Millennium, Loan Star Libraries, SBC, Chevy Rock, Summerlee, Ewing Halsell and various oil field companies such as 3S and SM Energy the library has been able to offer its patrons many beneficial and educational programs.
