About the Evelyn Meador Branch

The Evelyn Meador Branch Library opened on June 26, 1988. The library was begun in 1985 when five interested Seabrook residents met with Commissioner Jim Fonteno to inquire about getting a branch library built in Seabrook. In 1985 the City of Seabrook, with the blessings of Rex and Evelyn Meador, donated to Harris County six acres of land originally given to the City by the Meadors. The donation was given with the stipulation that a county branch library would be built within two years of the donation.

The Friends group was founded in 1985 by a small group of interested Seabrook citizens. The initial size of the library was to have been 4,500 square feet. However, the Friends wanted a larger library and meeting room for community use and raised the additional funds needed through book sales, donations and a Buy-a-Brick program. Through their efforts the library was expanded to 7,217 square feet. The President of the Friends at the time of the library opening was Jim Hargrove. There is a permanent display of Old Seabrook history in the library meeting room, which was created and is maintained by the Friends group.
