Naming Our Library

We want you to help us name your new library! Houston Public Library Executive Director Rhea Lawson, Vice Mayor Pro Tem Martha Castex-Tatum and the library naming committee are inviting the community to participate in the naming of the new state-of-the-art library to be located at 5505 Belrose Drive, 77035.

Construction of the new library is expected to begin in the end of 2021 and to be completed by the end of 2022.

If you have a suggested name for the new library, we want to hear from you. Your suggested name, and a support statement in 250 words or less, can be submitted at:  Submission deadline is Monday, May 24, 2021 until 5 PM. Don’t wait! We want to hear from you! For more details:

The top 3 names will be sent to the library board of directors for review and a final decision will be announced shortly thereafter.

The Library Naming Committee is made up of area residents from Westbury, Brays Oaks, Hiram Clarke and Meyerland. Two members of the Houston Public Library system, District K and District C City Council staff are supporting the committee.

Libraries are invaluable to communities by bringing people together and connecting them to a wealth of resources. Libraries offer more than just books; they provide FREE access to technology and computers, classes and events, and along with other vital services, they provide a place for people to connect with their neighbors and to the world.. Vice Mayor Pro Tem Martha Castex-Tatum, who represents the district where the newest library is scheduled for construction, is excited to provide this naming opportunity to the surrounding community.
