Tyler Public Library approves membership fee exemption for TISD students

On Sept. 9, Tyler City Council approved an update to the Code of Ordinance to include a clause that exempts Tyler Independent School District (TISD) students residing outside of City limits from paying Tyler Public Library membership fees.

Non-resident minors under the age of 18, who are enrolled as students at TISD may apply for a Library card free of charge by presenting a school identification card or proof of school enrollment.

The change in the ordinance came about after COVID-19 caused many schools to refrain from checking materials out to students due to their inability to quarantine items upon return. By providing this exemption, the Library will allow students to access a wide variety of materials and digital resources that may otherwise be out of their reach.

“Over 75% of TISD students are economically disadvantaged,” said City Librarian Ashley Taylor. “It is our mission to meet our patrons’ needs for information, education and recreation, so we hope this allows more people to access these resources.”

For more information on Library cards, visit or call (903) 593-7323.

Keep Tyler Beautiful Unveils New Murals Around Town

stanleys bbq tyler tx eguide magazine

Eight artists from the community are working with Keep Tyler Beautiful to repaint the mural along South Loop 323 between Fry Avenue and New Copeland Road. The previous mural featuring 520 feet of colorful roses was painted in 2011 by students from multiple Tyler high schools, but it has now faded. The final mural will be completed in October.

“The art mural is intended as a creative outlet for artists in our community,” said Keep Tyler Beautiful Coordinator Belen Casillas. “Our vision is to display local art by Tyler artists and promote Keep Tyler Beautiful.”

In addition, Keep Tyler Beautiful has partnered with local artists Lisa Horlander and Daryl Phillips to paint murals at Emmett J. Scott Park and Woldert Park, respectively.

The new mural at Emmett J. Scott Park is on the newly renovated restrooms and the mural at Woldert Park is on the electrical box near the new splash pad. Both artists have been involved with art projects at Tyler Parks and with the Beauty and the Box program.
