Best Branch Library Oasis

Windsor Village Library

Following its recent relocation from a nearby strip mall, the revitalized Windsor Park branch -- behind the regal lions -- became even more indispensable to the neighborhood. There are so few walking destinations in near Northeast (north of Old Mueller Airport) that the library, with its high-demand Internet terminals and affably knowledgable staff, can be a second home for kids and adults alike. Students do their homework, community groups hold their meetings, and books, films, and CDs fly in and out -- there's even a great free mag exchange out front! Hail to a hearty handful of unsung heroes of literacy and neighborliness.
