Library 70th Anniversary Events


Cedar Hill will be celebrating all year in 2018! Special anniversary events are planned to acknowledge the continued service of the Cedar Hill Public Library that was established in a small building at Houston and Cedar Street in 1948. The library was part of the Dallas County Public Library system and had 229 borrowers by the end of its first year. The library was renamed the Zula B. Wylie Public Library in honor and memory of Mrs. Wylie who donated the land where the current library is located. Although the library has had several locations and librarians, it remains a continuing resource to the community with over 40,000 registered borrowers.
