Library

The Alice G. Kleberg Library is built upon land given to the school in 1912 by Mrs. Henrietta M. King, wife of Captain Richard King, founder of the King Ranch.  In gratitude for the abiding interest shown to this school by Mrs. King, Mrs. Kleberg and the succeeding generation of their family donated this library building to the memory of Mrs. Alice G. Kleberg.

 

The library houses over 30,000 volumes and is the academic heart of the school.  Furnished with comfortable chairs and individual study carrels, it provides a tranquil setting for study and research.  Visit our online PPAS library website.
