HISTORY OF MAMIE GEORGE BRANCH LIBRARY
Mamie George Branch Library opened in November 1974, and was named for Mamie George, a well-known Fort Bend County philanthropist. Her family was very instrumental in the early development of the Fort Bend County library system. Funds for the building were donated by The George Foundation, and the land for the library site was donated by the Fort Bend Independent School District. The 4900-square-foot building was designed by Wylie W. Vale and Associates, Wylie W. Vale, Design Architect. The branch was renovated in 1991, and in 1996, the small-business-center materials that were formerly housed at the Missouri City Branch were moved to the Mamie George Branch.

FRIENDS OF THE MAMIE GEORGE BRANCH LIBRARY


The Friends of Mamie George Branch Library was organized to support the branch with extra funds for things not provided for in the county budget. The group has an ongoing booksale in the branch, and over the years, the organization has purchased trees for the library's outside landscaping, as well as needed books for the collection. New interior signage for the building was also founded by the friends. For more information about the Friends of Mamie George, or to join the organization, call 281-242-2327 or email bendwood@swbell.net.
