Dienger Building or Boerne Public Library was built by Joseph and Ida Dienger in 1887. It was originally a dry-goods grocery store with the family living quarters upstairs. When the city purchased the building in 1991, ghost stories began to be told. Locals saw lights going on and off in the empty building at night, voices were heard in empty hallways, books fell off the shelves, and an apparition of a woman appeared beside the staircase. As legend has it, the ghosts here are the spirits of Ida and Joseph Dienger.
