Shepherd Public Library

30 North Liberty Street
Shepherd, TX 77371


Through old newspaper articles that were saved and different notes and documents along with them, we are able to offer you a glimpse into the beginnings of the Shepherd Public Library. First started in 1963 as the Roland Tisinger Memorial Library, we have Mrs. Bessie Tisinger to thank for her vision of having an established library for the people of Shepherd. From that small library, started in the back rooms of her home, to the City's adoption of the library and it's subsequent name change to Shepherd Public Library, to today's technology of an automated library complete with public use computers - our library has grown into something we can all be proud of. Take time to read these articles and learn where we began!
