Seal Memorial Library
The Seal Memorial Library is one of the most interesting but least known in the country. The current 1000 square foot building was completed in 1893 at a cost of $100. The library offers over 500 book titles for adults, youth, and children. Special collections include Lawn Mowers, Propane, Reference, Nationwide telephone directories, college catalogs, large print books and government publications. The Seal Memorial Library is one of the few libraries left in the country to not use computers. This allows our visitors the opportunity to find books the way they did back when the library was first built. The Library is a member of the North Texas Library System; and through this consortium, free motion picture films can be obtained, as well as any of over 12 million books through interlibrary loan.
