The Hector Branch Library is in its tenth year of operation. We opened for business in October 1996. The library was a result of a small rural community’s vision. To fulfill the vision of a library for our community, it was built over a period of several years by donated labor, materials, and a $10,000 donation from the Quorum Court of Pope County. We serve a wide range of patrons with eclectic taste in reading. In 1999, to further serve our patrons, public access computers were added by a grant from the Gate’s Foundation.
