Swisher County Library had it’s beginnings in 1921. In September of 1921, a committee appointed by the Tulia Civic League met to plan a subscription library. By April of 1922, fifty-six families had paid a year’s membership fee of $1.00 each. The library started out with a total of 100 books. Some of them came from money donated by local businessmen and others came from book donations from other citizens.

The library became a member of Harrington Library Consortium in 1992. In 1993, automation of the library was begun. It was finished in 1999 with Mrs. Betty Hobgood as librarian. Mrs. Hobgood was responsible for helping to bring the library into the computer age. She wrote grants to get the first public access computers and worked with the Tocker Foundation to get the Tulia Herald digitized and hosted online for the years 1918-1962. As of 2016, the library houses approximately 12,000 books, 700 audio/visual and 7 public access computers.
