The first library in Muleshoe was started by the Muleshoe Study club and the 1939 Study Club. In 1942, it was called the Bailey County Library and was located in the Bailey County Court House. Today, the library is known as the Muleshoe Area Public Library. It opened August 10, 1964. On September 10, 1968 the citizens of Muleshoe approved a $40,000 bond issue to construct a new library. A $50,000 construction grant was later received from the Texas State Library. Our 6,000 square ft., octagon-shaped building opened December 15, 1971. The library has been the proud recipient of two Tocker Foundation grants, three Texas Book Festival grants, two Frank Dobie grants, three Telecommunication Infrastructure Fund grants and two Libri Foundation grants.

The library has 18,070 materials including books, DVDs, audios and sound recordings. This does not include paperbacks. Annuals from the different community schools are also available.
