The Coldspring Area Public Library is a public service institution.  With the exception of the Library Director and an assistant to the Librarian, it is staffed by volunteers and funded by grants, the fundraising efforts of the Friends of the Library, and donations from individuals, public and civic organizations.

Coldspring Area Public Library is truly a testimony of what a community can accomplish when everyone works together for a common goal.  Originally promoted by the San Jacinto County Women's League, the Heritage Society, and the Friends of the Library, the Coldspring Area Public Library has become a valued cornerstone in the community.  Over 30 years after its founding, the library continues to expand its services to better meet the needs of our citizens.

The library offers a wide range of services to our community.  These services include notary service, reference materials, a free computer lab, WIFI, free library cards, interlibrary loans, a conference room, books, a color printer, a FAX machine, a scanner, a copy machine, as well as CDs, DVDs and video resources.


The mission of the library is to offer library services to the Coldspring area providing access to information in many different formats while promoting knowledge, education, lifelong learning, and recreational enrichment for our patrons.  Our library also encourages the love of reading and joy of learning while creating a positive impact on the lives that we touch.
