The Bear Creek branch was opened in 1983. It sustained tornado damage in November 1992 and reopened in December 1993 after extensive repairs and renovation work. The branch was renamed the Katherine Tyra Bear Creek Library in October 1999 in honor of Harris County District Clerk, Katherine Tyra, who served from 1991-1995.
Katherine Tyra has a small but dedicated Friends group. The Friends support children's programming year round and supply funds for furnishings and materials for the branch. The Friends group welcomes new members.
