We have our new location!! It's at the Sonterra Mud Building which is located at 113 Limestone Terrace, in Jarrell. Such excitement as the Community of Jarrell comes together, reopening our Library. Our new assumed name - Jarrell Community Library - embodies all that we hope it will, as we work together to see this Community grow from strength to strength! If you're interested, we'd love to have your help. It will impact this generation, and those to come in the years ahead. Stop by whenever you're in the neighborhood, and check us out.
The Library is staffed completely by volunteers, so if you happen to stop by (but the doors are closed and the lights off) please bear with us as we attempt to gather the necessary volunteers to staff the Library. If you are interested in helping out, give us a call, or send us an email! We desperately need your help.
It's the Community coming together, for a great cause!
It is the mission, duty and purpose of Jarrell Community Library to provide library and other services to the public and in the public's interests. We will provide education, research assistance, public facilities, access to
the internet, lectures and speaking engagements, and/or other services deemed beneficial for the citizens in Jarrell and surrounding communities. It is a library FOR the community, BY the community.
The Library will provide research assistance and internet access to library patrons. This will be done by way of the technological services, which include computers and/or laptops for use on a free basis. These resources may assist in online educational programs for home school students, continuing education, exam preparation, as well as preparation for your GED. Plans for this center include a self-service area for printing, copying, scanning, and fax capabilities.
Additional educational opportunities may include a Visiting Scholars Program, which will allow experts in various fields of study such as Engineering, Math, Science, and Technology, to present talks, seminars, and/or conferences to the public. The research and technical expertise these scholars will present help to foster learning within the students who participate, and provide a venue which will allow individual questions to be asked & answered.
Says one Board member:
"I want to build a vibrant and effective place for our community and surrounding communities, which provides quality materials and services that fulfill educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful and businesslike."
This library will be a source of community pride, as well as a safe haven for all citizens to enjoy.
