About the New Library
The new Rockwall County Library building opened September 8, 2008. It is located at the intersection of Yellowjacket Lane and T.L. Townsend, across the street from RISD stadium and just north of Interstate 30.
The 52,000 square foot building is approximately five times the size of the previous library, which was located in a renovated post office.
The building was designed by PSA-Dewberry Architects and was built by Pogue Construction. It was financed by community donations and an $11.5 million bond issue that was passed in November 2004.
