Public Art Library Opens Inside El Paso Art Museum
From the El Paso Times
What’s new is the Algur H. Meadows Library — named after the late Dallas art collector and entrepreneur — is now open to the public with set hours.
Previously, it was by appointment only and was primarily used by the museum’s staff, said Michael Tomor, director of the art museum.
During the past two years, El Paso Public Library staff have cataloged more than 4,000 art books in the museum’s collection, Tomor said. There are another 2,000 to 3,000 exhibition catalogs from the last 50 years that haven’t been added yet, he added.
