First Floor Reopening, July 17, 2013

Phase V restoration saw the first floor reopened to the public on July 17, 2013. Thanks to many generous donations, the architectural firms of Ford Powell & Carson and Gensler, and the Vaughn Construction Company, Rosenberg Library is now offering the Galveston Community the highest standards in children's library services in a beautiful new setting, as well as state-of-the-art technology for self-check and intelligent materials return handling.  (You can see slides of the devastation the first floor suffered in the wake of Hurricane Ike by clicking here.)

Come in to visit us soon and often!
