Janet Harte

Philanthropist
This library is named the Janet F. Harte Public Library in recognition of the $1.84 million gift to the city from Janet and Ed Harte establishing this library. The Library Foundation raised additional funds to augment this historic gift. Over $100,000 was raised for additional books, furnishings and equipment. Harte is located next to the Flour Bluff High School and operates as a joint public/high school library through an agreement between the City of Corpus Christi and the Flour Bluff Independent School District.
