Delta County Library


ENCOURAGED TO SUPPORT
YOUR ANCESTOR'S LIBRARY
The place that preserves your family's history. Donations are welcomed.
In June of 2016, Karen Falls, the Delta County librarian, was hospitalized. She suffered brain aneurysms and strokes that have left her incapacitated and unable to work.
The ways we can help are:
* On July 24, 2016 there will be a Sunday brunch to benefit the library and help with Karen Falls' August salary. Check with Judy Falls for details.
* There is a GoFundMe page set up to help Karen Falls with life expenses until other assistance can be provided.
All of us who know Karen Falls love her dearly and wish her the very best in the long recovery ahead.

The Delta County Library sell a collection of cemetery books, "Voices in the Wind: The Cemetery Records of Delta County Texas".  This project was complied by Judy Falls and Sylvia Wood.  These books are a real tribute to all the Delta County citizens that worked together to preserve the cemetery records of Delta County.  Several of the 1997 Cooper High School students canvased the cemeteries and recorded the tombstones.  Others within the community that contributed are the former Sheriff, Benny Fisher, former Delta County Commissioner, Mickey Goforth; Don Woodward; Edna Ruth Roan; and Doris Alley and many others.   The following Delta County cemetery associations mentioned include: Oak Lawn Cemetery Association, Pecan Gap Cemetery Association, Lake Creek Cemetery Association and the East Delta Cemetery Association. The proceeds from the sale of these books support the library, the only secure repository for Delta County historical records.  If you decide to purchase any books from the library, please let the librarian know that you located the booklist at the TxGen website.
There are five books:
Oaklawn and New Home
The 'East End' Cemeteries
The 'North Side" Cemeteries
The 'South Side' Cemeteries
