Library Curbside To Cease

Access Your Library 24/7 With Digital Resources

The Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library will cease curbside book checkout Friday, Mar. 20, at 6 p.m. and move to digital services only for the foreseeable future. Decisions like these do not come easy, as it means a temporary loss of access to the in-person services the Library is known for providing to so many in our community, but resources are always available via our many digital services. This measure is being taking to protect the public, staff, and volunteers who utilize the Library every day.

Your Library is not closed as we are always open with our digital services. The Library will continue to provide these resources patrons have come to love, which may be found on our website and catalog. Patrons can find e-books and e-audiobooks, digital magazines, and more by visiting our Digital Content and Links of Interest pages. Staff will be available by phone at 830-258-1274, via email at, or by text at 830-215-0640 to provide assistance. This service is available Monday—Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Please drop off your items at our drive through bookdrop at City Hall or our walk-up bookdrop at the Library.

For patrons who have borrowed Library materials in their possession, do not fear the due date – the Library is extending loan periods during this time, so patrons do not need to return materials until the Library is back in full operation.

The City of Kerrville and Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library will continue to communicate with patrons as the response to the COVID-19 outbreak evolves. Library staff look forward to welcoming patrons back into our building when COVID-19 runs its course. Until then, take advantage of our great digital resources.

Thank you.

Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library

The Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library's mission is to provide the means by which people of all ages, interests, and circumstances may avail themselves of the recorded wisdom, experiences and ideas of others.

Professional librarians assemble, organize and make accessible materials which offer opportunities for personal, educational, cultural and recreational enrichment; they develop collections, services, and programs which respond to individual and community needs. The library employs a skilled staff and the latest technologies to facilitate and enhance the use of library resources.

The management and staff are committed to excellence in all facets of the library's service and operation and support the democratic ideals upon which the American public library is founded.
