Although the Pleasant Hill Branch of the Austin Public Library officially opened in South Austin on May 1, 1987, the Branch was actually founded back in 1966 with the opening of the Southwood Mall Branch in the Southwood Mall shopping center. In 1982, it was relocated to retail space within the Century South shopping center at the intersection of E. William Cannon and IH-35, and renamed the Century South Branch. Five years later, it moved again, but this time to a permanent facility. It was named Pleasant Hill since it stands on the hill that serves as the focal point and namesake for the area. In 2000 the interior and exterior  of the Branch was renovated and an outdoor “council ring” sitting area, peacefully situated under a shady cluster of oak trees, was added. The area has quickly become a popular spot for reading, storytelling, and just passing the time.

Cover of the book American wife : a novel
By Curtis Sittenfeld.
On what might become one of the most significant days in her husband's presidency, Alice Blackwell considers the strange and unlikely path that has led her to the White House--and the repercussions of a life lived, as she puts it, "almost in opposition to itself." How can she both love and fundamentally disagree with her husband? How complicit has she been in the trajectory of her own life? What should she do when her private beliefs run against her public persona?--From publisher description.
