“Open our doors and grow your dreams”
The Buffalo Public Library was established in 1971. A group of scholarly ladies formed a non-profit organization called “The Friends of the Buffalo Public Library” to establish a public library in the Buffalo community. This original Library was located on Railroad Street in the ‘Old Lyon Hotel.’
In 1983, the Champion Mobile Home Company built a custom mobile house for the Library. The Library moved into this new facility located on the corner of Fairfield Street and Main Street. This building was donated to the City of Marquez for a library when the City of Buffalo constructed the present building in 1992, on the I-45 East Frontage Road. Two expansions to this building have been made since that time. The present Library has 3,000 square feet of space.
The Buffalo Public Library has been accredited by The Texas State Library since 1982.
