Welcome to the Marfa Public Library

MPL Reference Room

Visit our new Reference Room!

One of the most significant additions to the library is the recent renovation of a former office into a reference room. While much of the librarians’ time is spent searching online for various reference questions, there are still some answers that can only be found in good old-fashioned printed materials.
Additional materials in the reference room are of local interest. On view are a selection of Marfa High School yearbooks (dating back to the late 1940s) and scrapbooks, like the GIANT Giant scrapbook and another dedicated to the Marfa Lights. We also have all of the Junior Historian files available for local research questions.

The renovation of our new reference room was generously supported by The Catherine Dumraese Trust.
