History of the Library

The Fannie Brown Booth Library has served Shelby County residents at its present site in Center since 1974. Mr. Edwin Brown Booth, son of Fannie Brown Booth, a beloved area schoolteacher, spearheaded the effort to secure funding from the Brown Foundation of Houston for the current library building. Center’s civic organizations and the City of Center provided the other funding necessary to provide the community with a quality facility. The library also provides a spacious meeting room that is furnished and maintained by the Redditt family members. The community is indebted to those organizations and individuals who continue to support the library.
