  • Awesome library. they have a cool space age place for teens to hang out. a place just for the little ones to hang out. and many floors for meetings, reading, computer work and more. the art is fabulous
  • Wonderful location and building design. Great place to take your​ kids to checkout books. The staff here are great!
  • This library is pretty good. Way better than the downtown Houston library.
  • Very mid 1980s in terms of architecture and color scheme. I read some books here although I can't remember which ones. Located within close distance to the Greyhound bus station and the Riverwalk. If you like old school 1980s buildings this is one.
  • One of my top three favorite libraries in San Antonio. A great place to study and meet with peers. They have a large children section and plenty of cozy places to sit and read.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
