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!

While visiting Galveston I needed access to a computer lab. To my delight I found a very large area of computers and was given a visitor's pass. The staff was so helpful and patient. The entire library is much larger than I expected with so many interesting things. It is not your average home town library.

Free large parking lot in the rear of the building. Go to the 4th floor to see the free exhibits. One follows the history of Galveston, including the Civil War activity. Another follows the culture changes and disasters. Antique momentoes indicate past beauty pagents, buttons supporting the building of the seawall and harbor activity, plus much more. Gives you a...

Who knew a small town would have a such a large high tech library. High tech to me is you check your books, movies, music in/out yourself. Staff is very helpful, library very clean and organized. Different levels with elevator access separates the ages appropriate sections. This library also host various activities.

As libraries go this is a good one. I went there to see what kind of genealogy materials they had. They've concentrated mostly on local history but also have some genealogy databases to access. Don't miss the exhibit about the history of Galveston.

Wonderful childrens library on lower floor...hands-on area, many computers, easy access to books, beautiful ocean-themed decor. Nice, small museum on 4th floor. Many window displays of Galveston's history before the Civil War and others explaining history from then up to present. Several more hands-on displays for kids and adults. Special gallery showings in an additional room. All this right across... More
