In celebration of its 20th year, Fort Bend County Libraries’ Missouri City Branch Library, 1530 Texas Parkway, will host an anniversary celebration on Saturday,
September 22, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.
A brief ceremony will begin at 2:30 pm in the Meeting Room. Local, county, and city officials will be on hand for the celebration. The festivities will include a display depicting the changes in library technology over the past 20 years, as well as photographs of Missouri City in 1992. Refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the Missouri City Branch Library will be available throughout the afternoon.
The Missouri City Branch Library was built on a 2.5-acre site adjacent to the Missouri City Civic Center, and opened in June 1992. The 18,462-square-foot facility was part of a $10.9-million bond approved by voters in 1989 for the construction of the Missouri City Branch, the First Colony Branch, the Sugar Land Branch, and upgrades to the Mamie George Branch in Stafford. In addition to the county bond money, contributions from Missouri City and funds from the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) from the Texas State Library were used to build the branch. The Missouri City Branch Library exemplifies the way in which city, county and state can work together to bring a worthwhile project to fruition.
The public is invited to join the anniversary celebration. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2100 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
