We regularly visit the Parman Library at Stone Oak because its in the neighborhood, but it seems its book selection is not as big of some of SA's larger libraries. I think that is just a trend in newer libraries, given competition with eBooks, and so they instead have increased space for computer stations and meeting and work places. In this sense the Parman does a good job.

Here are some pictures I took when it had just opened a few years ago.

Very pretty pictures. Loving the openness created by the large windows and natural lighting.

Awesome photos!
Do you just love to shoot library photos or was this for a publication?
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, they are just personal photos. I take pictures of my daughter exploring wherever we go and these are just a few that did not have her in there.

Collins Gardens. It looks like a library. Lots of natural light. Books shelves dont tower over you. lots of cosy places to sit and read. The librarians have been there for years.

Igo is also a smaller, but nice branch, on Kyle Seale off Hausman on NW side.

My kids and I intend to take "field trips" to visit all the libraries in SA!

One question : If I have a SA public library card, can I borrow books from Boerne library?

Ten years ago the downtown Main library was on the banks of the riverwalk. You entered the building at St Mary's and Market (now Biga on the Banks) and you could go to the lower level and look outside the large windows to the riverwalk.
