When Will the Taylor Public Library Open?
    Texas libraries are community centers, offering critical services to hundreds of people a day, many from high-risk backgrounds such as seniors, and families with children. Protecting the health and safety of library employees, and the people they serve is the priority of all library leaders across the state.
    Taylor Public Library staff are currently working part time in the building, getting ready for eventual opening.  Safety measures for staff and library patrons require cleaning supplies & new safety related equipment. Please check for announcements via the library's Facebook, Instagram or this website.
