The Friends of the Bertram Free Library has received a 2 million dollar grant for a state of the art library from the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation. The name of the new library will be the Joann Cole Mitte Memorial Library in honor of Bertram’s home town girl who was born and raised in Bertram. Construction of the building began in June of 2010 and is scheduled to be completed in October. Following completion, it will take approximately two months to furnish, and the library will open early in 2011.
In 2006 Money Magazine® listed Burnet County, including Bertram, as one of the top places to live in the country. Why? Because of its hills, valleys, woods and water and the affordability of buying this beauty.
