The City of Garden Ridge Library was founded in 1998 and is run with the aid of many volunteers. It has evolved from a small beginning of paperback book exchange into a well rounded library with over 17,300 items and a range of services for adults and children.

The mission of the Garden Ridge Public Library is to maintain and improve the quality of life for all residents of the community by providing resources and services that enhance and contribute to knowledge, education, enjoyment, and lifelong learning in the most efficient manner possible.

The Library offers a variety of classes and programs for all ages, and we especially recognize our responsibility to serve as a place for children to discover the joy of reading and the value of library.
