This is not an inventory

This site provides information about books on or related to Galveston. While we do carry as many of the books listed here as possible, this is not an inventory listing. The subject matter here is strictly books on Galveston and local interests.

The site was launched in March of 2012.


Searching works best with one or two keywords. Searching proceeds through all the book titles, descriptions and author names for each individual search term entered.

Another way to search is to open the Site Map and use your browser's search feature. The site map is a complete text listing of all the books currently present in the database. This is a quick way to locate a particular author name or title keyword. In Firefox press Control+F to open the Find tool-bar to search the text of any web page.

Are we missing a book?

We know the database is far from complete and we're always on the lookout for a new, old or forgotten about book on our beloved town. If you have such a book and want to help us out please contact us! We need all the publication details, and a scan or photograph of the cover to add a book to the database.
