Arlington Public Library - 100 Center St., Arlington TX 76010
It's the GRAND OPENING of your new George W. Hawkes Downtown Library! Join us for a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. followed by a full day of fun activities as we open the Downtown Library for the very first time.

The three-story, 80,000-square-foot facility sets a new standard for public programming tailored to meet the needs of a growing and diverse population. The first floor will have customized collections, play areas, interactive activities, technology dedicated to children from birth to 12 years old. A digital creativity lab with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) focus, computing space, and small group study rooms are provided on the second floor and aimed at teen patrons. An adult literacy area, also on the second floor, includes a large classroom and small tutoring space to support adult literacy programs and workforce development. Genealogy and history enthusiasts will enjoy the section of the third-floor housing material, displays, and computers for research.

Grand opening activities on Saturday and Sunday will include building tours, storytimes and puppet shows, movie screenings, performances, writing workshops, children's crafts, our Imagination Playground, technology demonstrations, details on this year's Summer Reading Club, and more. You can also check out your first book at the new building!
