The Bulverde/Spring Branch Library opened in its new 6,000 square foot location in the H.E.B. Shopping Center at the crossroads of Texas 46 & Highway 281 North in November 2002. Moving to the new location saw an increase in the number of card holders, visits and circulation that continued through the library’s stay in the H.E.B. Center. The 2001 Board of Trustees, Gary Tanner, Roger Geraghty, Linda Nielson, Molly Martin and Scott Watson undertook a study of the Library District which resulted in a recommendation that the library seek a more central location for the permanent library building. Mayor William Cole led the effort to discover and acquire a location for the permanent library building. After talking with several developers, the library received a donation of land worth $1.6 million from SCC Development Company as part of the agreement for developing the Home Depot site on Warren Hill.
Under the leadership of Don Clark, a committee formed to develop a plan for building a new library. At a ground-breaking ceremony in January 2007 the library was dedicated as the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library at the William J. Cole Library Park. Friends of the Library initiated the “Discover the World from Here” campaign to fully furnish and landscape the new site.
The new 18,680 square foot Bulverde/Spring Branch Library opened its doors on May 1, 2008.
