Rowlett Public Library

The Library is now open on the ground floor in the Village development. Transitioning the Library from its temporary location at 5702 Rowlett Road to Downtown was always been part of the Village of Rowlett development plan. The agreement with the Village is to house the Library for five years, with an option to renew for an additional two years. 

What’s the City going to do with the 5702 Rowlett Road facility?
The building has been repurposed for the Community Development and Economic Development Departments. 

Why can’t it stay open as a library branch?
The building’s proximity to downtown makes this less feasible, as it would require additional staffing and operational costs to do so. Branch libraries are more frequently seen in larger population centers that are further spread out geographically.
