Located in Missouri City, the Sienna Branch Library opened in April 2010, on a 4.5-acre site adjacent to Houston Community College Southwest – Missouri City (which later moved to a new site near the Missouri City Branch Library). A two-story, 45,000-square-foot building, the library is the second-largest branch in the Fort Bend County library system.
This branch was the first county library to be built in partnership with an educational institution. Houston Community College (HCC) wanted to establish a campus in the Sienna area of Missouri City, and Fort Bend County (FBC) wanted to build a library in the same general area. Officials from the county and HCC entered into talks to explore the practicality and cost benefit of sharing resources between the two groups, and a partnership agreement was reached for construction of a joint-use facility. The college purchased the property and donated a corner of it for the site of the library building, which was to be used by both Fort Bend County residents and HCC students. Special hours were established to allow earlier access to the building for students.
Sienna Branch Library opened with all the latest technology installed and with an opening collection developed for a diverse community. It was also the first county library to utilize Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) units in the checkout system. This feature is built into the outside and inside book drops, and enables items to be automatically checked in as they are returned in the book drop. Sienna also has six self-check machines with RFID technology.
HCC closed its Sienna campus at the end of the Spring 2016 semester. After the campus closed, Sienna Branch Library returned to standard branch hours and continues to offer full library services to the public.
