Diane Insley and Linda Coker

The City of San Marcos Public Library recently received a $5,000 donation from the Heritage Association of San Marcos to benefit the San Marcos and Hays County Local History Archives in the new library addition. 

“We’re thankful for our continued partnership with the Heritage Association and for their generous donation toward the expansion and upkeep of our historical archives,” said Library Director Diane Insley.  

The Heritage Association is a non-profit organization that supports the preservation of buildings, historical sites, and archives, as well as perpetuates traditions that beautify and enrich the community life of San Marcos. 

Construction on the $15.6 Million Public Library expansion project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2021.  The San Marcos Public Library was built into a 27,000 square feet, single-story building in January of 1994. The library expansion will add 28,000 square feet to the existing 27,000 square feet and is to be completed in early 2021. The new expansion will include modernized spaces, including a teen reading room, makerspace, technology hub, and enclosed children’s area. It will also include study rooms, conference rooms, and a large meeting room that will seat up to 240 people.
