The Carnegie Library is located at 204 N. 8th St., Ballinger, TX.  We strive to meet the needs of our community as well as residents of Runnels County.  Our services are free but our history is priceless.  Of the original 36 libraries in Texas funded by the Carnegie Foundation, we are one of three  Carnegie Library buildings in Texas still being used as a library.  The Carnegie Library of Ballinger will be 107 years old on its birthday.

If you can't find what you're looking for in our collection of over 13,000 materials, help is just a click away through an Inter Library Loan.  Books can be borrowed from other libraries in the Big Country System and mailed directly to the Library. 

Our friendly staff is eager to serve you.  Welcome to the Carnegie Library of Ballinger!  Carolyn and Amber and are waiting to serve YOU the people of Runnels County!

Our Mission

The mission of the Carnegie Library is to provide all persons in the community with a safe and confidential environment in which they may freely pursue intellectual, educational, and recreational interests through diverse services and resources collected in a variety of formats.
