Picture 20During tough economic times and the “go green movement,” there’s no better way to save a few dollars and trees and spend the day broadening your knowledge base than by visiting the downtown Dallas Public Library.  Whether you’re a library card toting resident or just looking to browse the vast rows of bookshelves, you won’t regret spending an afternoon exploring everything this library has to offer.

Lectures with authors from the New York Times Best Seller’s List and free inventor workshops are among some of the exciting offerings, and children can get in on the fun with story time and youth poetry competitions. If books aren’t your cup of tea, check out the media library for an impressive array of CDs, DVDs, and magazines.

The Dallas Public Library isn’t just for studying and quiet whispers, either. Weekend concerts, featuring local and visiting professional musicians, are free and open to the public.
