On September 6, 2008 the branch was re-dedicated as the Anita and W.T Neyland Public Library with the Mary and Jeff Bell Children's Area. Anita and W.T Neyland were generous community supporters helping to fund the recent renovations. Mary and Jeff Bell have been long-time supporters of children's libraries in Corpus Christi. Mary Bell was a long-time volunteer at the branch, reading to children for many years. Their generosity provided the new Children's furniture and expanded collection for the new addition. The addition doubled the size of the Children's area and provided a new Children's Reading area for expanded programming. The American Association of University Women – Corpus Christi Branch’s Bookfinders’ Book Nook offer book sales three to four times a year to benefit the Libraries and local scholarships.  Special Collections include:

* Large Print Collection at Neyland Library is one of the largest in the system funded in part from a bequest of Ms. Paralee Price.

* Classics Collection, funded by the AAUW Bookfinders, includes 1,000 Classic books, DVD, and Books on CD. In addition, there are special Classics programs throughout the year. Check the News & Events section for times and dates.
