About the Southwest Branch
The expanded Southwest Branch reopened March 10, 2007. It has a welcoming entry, and inside the branch the earth tones and light-colored wood create a sense of warm coziness. Words inspired by patron comments about the branch are engraved in granite panels set into the exterior pathway.
