Van Zandt County Courthouse Annex
We are inside the first door on left side of building, up the steps .
The Library offers four computers with internet access, Ancestry Library edition, History Geo, newspapers online, microfilm of county newspapers, marriages licenses, various other county records, and microfilm Census records (if you like researching the old-fashioned way). We offer quite a few books relating to Van Zandt County specifically, and books of other Texas counties as well as other states. We are a great little library for genealogy research.
