Library

The Grapevine Public Library first opened in 1923 as a branch of the Fort Worth Library system. Families selected more than 60 books that very first day from old stacked boxes, cornered in the front of a local bank.

Today, the Grapevine Library offers more than 92,000 titles for your reading enjoyment and to build knowledge. The Grapevine Library provides information in all types of media, including books and ebooks, videos, software programs, music CD’s, DVD’s and computers for the visually impaired. There are up-to-date business reference databases, online encyclopedias, newspapers and free Wi-Fi for everyone. They also offer business services, including a fax machine, scanner, and printers.

Coming to the Library through the eyes of a child is a great adventure. You enter the Grapevine Public Library children’s section through an archway of rocks and grapevines into a magical world of books. The colorful cobblestone carpet leads the way to the Story House where storytellers share stories, books have the ability to find you, and the craft room provides fun things to ‘make and take’ home.
