Director's Message

Your Library Director Welcomes You

Welcome to the Balch Springs Library-Learning Center, your gateway to information in Balch Springs.  Here at the library our staff provides friendly, helpful services to the citizens of Balch Springs, and to help in your need to find information in a variety of different formats. 

Since opening our facility in April 2006, we have enjoyed great success with many of our programs and are delighted to report over 100,000 patron visits to the library each year.  Here at the library there is a little something for everyone. Eastfield Community College   offers classes such as Criminal Justice, GED and ESL.  The Summer Reading Program has had almost 400 children participating each year we have been open. Additionally, the library has collaborated with the Balch Springs Chamber of Commerce to bring a historical display to the library as well as the Dr. T-Bird Gordon Cultural Arts Center, featuring four different arts exhibits a year.

As Director of the library, I invite you and your family to come out and enjoy the library and the library services. Check out the Balch Springs historical display or the Cultural Arts exhibit. See what is happening at the library by viewing our calendar of events. We also have 24 computers available for public use and over 26,000 items that may be checked out.  Additionally, we have over 1,000 of the latest DVD's and video's for patrons to check out. If you can't find what you are looking for, just ask a librarian, and we will be glad to help any way we can.
