West U. Branch Is Back!

West University Branch Library reopened Monday, so stop by, say hello, browse the stacks, use one of our new Windows 10 computers or just sit and read a magazine!

We thank all of our wonderful West U. customers for their understanding and patience. We thank the City of West University Place for its support, and we thank the City of Bellaire Library for its generous assistance during West U's renovations.

The library closed in November 2016 when the West University Place City Council approved funding for necessary renovations.  The upgrades bring the library into full compliance with new ADA and safety requirements.
