Being Texas' oldest library, I expected it to be dilapidated. Nope, As a matter of fact it is very contemporary. If you go near the beginning of the hour, you can hear chapel bells ring out with the new hour.

I love libraries and this one is spectacular. I also love doing research and this has one of the best research sections I have seen. The friendly staff is available to answer any questions you have.

Nice museum on the top floor. Each floor was dedicated to a specific clientele. If I were a child, I would be begging to go to the library. Fascinating area for children. When I was a child, a visit to the library happened every 3 weeks, still prefer the smell of books.

Gorgeous building and when they have the exhibit floors open you can spend 1/2 day with ease. It is just a very cool old library!
