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 No safe house
By Linwood Barclay.
"Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible. Terry's wife, Cynthia, is living separate from her husband and daughter after her own personal demons threatened to ruin her relationship with them permanently. Their daughter, Grace, is rebelling against her parents' seemingly needless overprotection. Terry is just trying to keep his family together. And the entire town is reeling from the senseless murder of two elderly locals. But when Grace foolishly follows her delinquent boyfriend into a strange house, the Archers must do more than stay together. They must stay alive. Because now they have all been unwillingly drawn into the shadowy depths of their seemingly idyllic hometown. For there, they will be reconnected with the man who saved their lives seven years ago, but who still remains a ruthless, unrepentant criminal. They will encounter killers for hire working all sides. And they will learn that there are some things people value much more than money, and will do anything to get it. Caught in a labyrinth between family loyalty and ultimate betrayal, Terry must find a way to extricate his family from a lethal situation he still doesn't fully comprehend. All he knows is that to live, he may have to do the unthinkable..."--
