Collections & Services

The Schaefer Branch Library will provide community responsive services, a robust collection of books and materials and integrated technology.

The library includes all of the traditional and modern resources San Antonio residents have come to expect. Print and electronic books will be available, along with a public computing lab, free WiFi and laptops available for check out.

Professional librarians will provide reference and research assistance, and programming for children, teens and adults will be available.

The Schaefer Branch Library will be welcoming with communal learning spaces, individual study spaces and lounge areas. The building will house a large community meeting room for civic activities. The branch will also include a children’s playground, thanks to the Rotary Club of San Antonio / Kingdom for Kids XVI.


The Schaefer Branch Library is located in the Eastside. This new Library will contribute to the quality of life of the area, and offer access to an array of Library services and programs. It will serve as a destination point for the community and will provide opportunities for civic engagement. Libraries provide a place where students learn, citizens engage, and communities gather. The goal is to provide citizens access to resources that encourage lifelong learning and to open new doors for our community and its citizens.
