Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library opened in May 1998, the third branch voted for in the 1989 bond election. The land for the library site had been the Precinct 4 headquarters and was offered for the library site by the precinct commissioner, Bob Lutts, who had taken on the task of seeing the library project through. The Fulshear City Council requested that the county name the library for Commissioner Lutts. The library closed on May 13, 2023, in preparation for the opening of the new Fulshear Branch Library later that year.
The Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library are no longer accepting book donations. Please hold all donations of gently-used books until the new Fulshear Branch Library opens (late summer).
The Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton 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 book sale in the branch, as well as occasional special sales. Over the years, the organization has purchased the display cases in the building and the marquee to announce and advertise programs and resources available in the library. They also provide funding for the Summer Reading Club programs and supplies, as well as funding for children's and adult programming throughout the year.
