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 is situated on a beautiful wooded site of over seven acres. On those seven acres you will find Lori Norwood’s sculpture, Learning to Fly, part of the Austin Art in Public Places program.
