Best City Library

Austin Public Library

For the next six months, at least, while the J.H. Faulk Main Library is closed forremodeling, the city has tabbed this branch as the next best thing for research. They've moved both the periodicals and reference services here, and if it's not in the same class as Faulk, at least it's open (including new 2-6pm Sunday hours). Is this a prelude to the expansion into the old Americana Theatre next door, which the City already owns? Only time - and the budget process - will tell.
