HISTORY:The Boerne Public Library was originally established by the Boerne Grange in 1952. The first 400 books were donated by the area residents then sorted and arranged by volunteers. The collection was housed in a room next to the fire house on City property. The library remained in this building until 1967. At that time this new 2000 square foot building, financed by community donations with Grange help and a Library Services Construction Act Grant, was built. In 1977, the City of Boerne took over the operation from the Grange.

The Boerne Public Library later moved to the Dienger building. This building was occupied by the Boerne Police Department. As the City of Boerne grew the Police Department needed more space. The building was remodeled and enlarged to fit its present use in 1997.
