In 1989, Fort Bend County voters approved a $10.9-million bond issue to build four new libraries (the Missouri City Branch, the First Colony Branch, the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch, and the Sugar Land Branch) and to renovate the main library and existing branches. County bond funds, combined with contributions from Missouri City and Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) funds from the Texas State Library, were used to build the branch. The 18,458-square-foot Missouri City Branch Library opened on June 1, 1992, with an opening-day collection of 25,000 volumes and a capacity for 80,000 items.
In the 2015 bond election, voters approved funding for the renovation and expansion of the existing building to better meet the needs of a growing community and to update the library’s technology and digital resources. A 3-story, 11,009-square-foot addition was included to provide more space for meetings, study, and computers. With a new total of 29,467 square feet, Missouri City Branch Library is now the fifth largest library in the Fort Bend County library system, which includes 11 libraries and management of the Fort Bend County Law Library.
The Friends of the Missouri City Branch Library was organized to support the branch with extra funds for things not provided for in the county budget. Many of the original members had worked hard for the 1989 bond election that resulted in the building of four new branch libraries throughout the county, beginning with Missouri City. The group has an ongoing book sale in the branch, and over the years, the organization has purchased several computers for the branch, provided funds for several reference sets and for books in general, provided funds for a slat wall display unit, and provided funds for the Summer Reading Club trophies. The organization has also regularly provided funds to both children's and adult programming.
