The mission of the Buda Public Library is to improve the quality of life for all residents of the community by providing resources and services that enhance their access to education, enjoyment, and lifelong learning through library materials, services, programs and online access.

The Buda Public Library began as a shelf in City Hall that would disappear every time someone opened the door. The Buda Community Women's Club worked for a real library by raising money and securing property. The creation of the Buda Public Library was made official on April 1, 1980 by an ordinance passed by the Buda City Council. The Buda Public Library got its own building in 1984, a small metal Butler building, on the Library's current site. The current Library building, a beautiful limestone building, was built in 1993 in a place of honor on Main Street, between the gazebo and the historic water tower. The Santa Cruz Catholic Church pledged $75,000 to the building of the new Library and chose to name it in honor of the french priest Basil Anthony Moreau, who founded the Congregation of the Holy Cross, which is devoted to education.
