I visited Austin Library summer 2018. There is a wonderful John Kerry Marshall mural on the mezziane (can not spell) level. A most beautiful building. I spent many hours there as a child, sitting on floor in the children’s section. Beautiful memories. thanks for posting.

I have many fond memories of the Austin Branch. I lived on Washington Blvd just west of Cicero. Many Saturday mornings when I was in fourth grade, three friends and I would walk down Washington Blvd. to Central Ave. and then go to the library. A bit later, my mother would allow me to walk there by myself. Walking past the shops on the Central Ave. leg of this trek was always fascinating to me, but the best part was when I arrived at the Library to see what new treasures I could find there.
