“Texas’ Oldest Library Gets a Facelift”
The library, which was built in 1904 and enjoys the distinction of being the oldest public library in Texas in continuous operation, unveils its new children’s section on July 17.
Hurricane Ike’s massive storm surge wiped out the first floor of Galveston’s Rosenberg Library, laying waste to the entire children’s section, “Every book, every poster, every puppet — gone,” said Karen Stanley, head of children’s services.
