University Hills library reopens with a party

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 by Tai Moses

Austin Public Library’s University Hills Branch is reopening to the public with a free festival that features a ribbon-cutting, the unveiling of a new sculpture, live music, food and drink, book giveaways, and family-friendly activities and crafts. The library, which suffered extensive water damage after Winter Storm Uri struck in February 2021, has a new roof and electrical wiring, new ceilings and flooring, and an expanded parking lot. Library chief Roosevelt Weeks said in a news release, “We are very excited that this important center for learning, culture and recreation for the East Austin community will be reopening its doors to the public. I think the community will be very pleased with the improvements that have been made at this branch, which will allow us to continue providing a safe and friendly environment for years to come.” May 21, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., 4721 Loyola Lane.
