BC: My guide Martha Loewen was very knowledgeable. I am so glad she was able to meet with me. In all our tour lasted about an hour and a half. I thought some of the features of this library were pretty neat. They have a Latino Collection that comprises of works for all ages relevant to Latinos in Texas. There was also a Texana room for Texas research.
