reading and studying in a library | Buda Public Library

Explore the Resources at the Buda Public Library

Who knew a little library card could give you access to so many resources? Find fun resources, books, and more at the Buda Public Library—all without a long drive. Discover everything your library offers within a short drive from our apartments in Buda, TX.


With your library card, you can access an almost endless supply of them from any genre you are fascinated by at the moment. Also, if you can't find the books you're looking for on the shelves, take advantage of the interlibrary loan program. Then you can request the book from just about any library in the country. It'll be shipped right back to your library for you to enjoy.

Learning Languages

Buda Public Library offers free access to Mango languages if you are learning a new language and need extra practice. With Mango, you can practice real-life conversations, learn about the culture, and expand your vocabulary. Additionally, there are many ESL programs at the library where you can practice in person with others learning English which would make a perfect addition to the twenty ESL courses available through Mango.

Book Clubs

Love to discuss books you read? Then it's time to join one of the book clubs offered at the library. The Bibliophiles Book Club was created for those of us who love good mysteries and thrillers. Or you may choose to join Buda Reads, a book club where everyone in the group helps to decide which books to read next, so you never know what is next on the reading list.

TexShare Card

TexShare Card is a perfect solution if you tend to travel often through the state. This program allows you to receive a library card and access resources at any of the libraries participating without paying non-residency fees. Currently, over five hundred libraries participate in TexShare Card.

Maker's Lab

Welcome to the happy place for every crafter and maker: Maker's Lab. Here you have access to all the latest gadgets you can "play" with, like the 3D printer and 3D scanner, Cricut cutting machine, Glowforge Plus laser cutter, and Singer sewing machines. General supplies and tools to help you with your projects are also available. Contact the library regarding making reservations and any additional costs associated with using specific machines.
