The Little Walnut Creek Branch of the Austin Public Library first opened its doors to the public on February 9, 1979 with a dedication ceremony following on May 17, 1979. Designed by architect James M. Patterson, the new 11,000 square-foot facility was built to serve the rapidly growing needs of North Austin and North Travis County. Funding for the Branch was made possible through the 1972 city bond issue, which also financed the construction of the Manchaca Road Branch in 1974 and downtown Central Library in 1979. While rapid growth in North Austin brought a variety of challenges to Little Walnut in the late 1980s to 1990s, the Branch continued to expand its role in the community through its programs and services. A Computer Learning Center was added to the Branch in 1999, and in June 2000, the branch opened a New Immigrants Center to provide helpful resources to individuals who are new to this country.

Cover of the book Lost City Radio : a novel
By Daniel Alarcón.
The powerful and searing novel of three lives fractured by a civil war For ten years, Norma has been the voice of consolation for a people broken by violence. She hosts Lost City Radio, the most popular program in their nameless South American country, gripped in the aftermath of war. Every week, the Indians in the mountains and the poor from the barrios listen as she reads the names of those who have gone missing, those whom the furiously expanding city has swallowed. Loved ones are reunited and the lost are found. Each week, she returns to the airwaves while hiding her own personal loss: her husband disappeared at the end of the war. But the life she has become accustomed to is forever changed when a young boy arrives from the jungle and provides a clue to the fate of her long-missing husband.
