The Willie Mae Kirk (Formerly Oak Springs) Branch opened its doors to the East Austin community on October 10, 1967. The Austin Public Library had worked for years to establish an East Austin library in addition to the Carver Branch which had served the area since 1933. The 10,000 square-foot Oak Springs (now Willie Mae Kirk) Branch was built with funds provided jointly by the City of Austin and the Texas State Library through the Federal Library Services and Construction Act. Designed by the architectural firm of Coates & Legge, the long and low building was outfitted with elevated glass panels to create an open and airy feeling on the inside.

Cover of the book Blue chameleon
By Emily Gravett.
The chameleon is feeling blue because he's lonely, so he goes and visits a yellow banana, pink cockatoo, swirly snail, brown boot, and so on. Each time, not only does he change his color to match the object or animal, but he also contorts himself into a shape that matches them.
