Tatum Public Library

335 Hood Street
Tatum, TX 75691


The Tatum Public Library opened in 1975 with enthusiastic support from library supporters. In 1978, the library moved from Tatum City Hall into a larger building. Later, the Friends of the Rusk County Library purchased land for the construction of a new building, and in 1990 the building campaign gained momentum with a $50,000 Meadows Foundation grant. Tatum area residents launched a widespread campaign to raise matching funds and exceeded their campaign goal of $50,000 and raised $110,000 in one year.

The new library building was opened on March 29, 1993 at the new location of 335 Hood Street in Tatum. The Tatum Library is located in a supportive community and has a very active Volunteer group.
