Rosenberg Library has offered over a century of community service to the Galveston area and is the oldest public library in Texas in continuous operation. The building was dedicated on June 22, 1904, the birthday of its patron, Henry Rosenberg. The Moody Memorial Wing opened in 1971, more than doubling the floor space and allowing for a children’s library, a history center, several galleries to showcase museum collections, and later, a computer lab. The Library accepted its first museum piece shortly after it opened in 1904. Since then, thousands of rare and interesting objects from around the world have been added to the collection. Library cards are issued by the Circulation Department on the 1st floor at no cost.
