The Gleason Memorial Library building was donated by Leon Gleason to the town of Ringling to be used as a library or museum. In 1992 the town voted to have a library and support it with a sales tax of one-quarter percent. The local Jaycees and Mr. Gleason gathered discarded books from several libraries. Mr. Gleason was chairman of the first library board. The library opened during the annual Western Day celebration in 1994. It grew from one small room to encompass the 1,500 square foot building which houses numerous books and six computers with public broadband Internet access.
The Gleason Memorial Library supports our community in their pursuit of learning, information, ideas and recreational materials.
