About the Hampton Branch at Oak Hill
The Will Hampton Branch of the Austin Public Library opened its doors to the communities of southwest Austin on April 26, 1997. The Branch was named in honor of Austin civic leader Will Hampton, who died on September 24, 1996. The Oak Hill Tritypch painting, created by artist David Everett as part of the City’s Art in Public Places program, is set against a pitched ceiling of skylights to give the lobby the quality of an atrium. The yard of the Library houses a gazebo dedicated to Mr. Hampton.
