When the Milwood Branch of the Austin Public Library celebrated its grand opening on July 26, 1997, the event was not only considered a triumph, but also the end of a long road-for both the Milwood community and the Austin Public Library. In the mid-1980s, concerned citizens and neighborhood organizations began lobbying for the much-needed Branch in far North Austin. Their campaign continued into the 1990s until voters finally approved funds for the Branch in the 1992 bond election. The Branch officially opened its doors to the public in 1997. The 8,266 square-foot facility designed with the potential to expand to 15,000 square feet is situated on a beautiful wooded site of 7.5 acres. The Milwood Branch is strategically located between the Spicewood Springs and Little Walnut Creek Branches and, together, the three facilities create a service triangle for meeting the informational needs of far North Austin.

Cover of the book My American unhappiness
By Dean Bakopoulos.
A clairvoyant when it comes to the Starbucks orders of strangers, a quixotic renegade when it comes to the federal bureaucracy, and a devoted believer in the afternoon cocktail and the evening binge, Zeke Pappas has an irreverent voice that is a marvel of lacerating wit and heart-on-sleeve emotion, underscored by a creeping paranoia and made more urgent by the hope that if he can only find a wife, he might have a second chance at life.
