This stunning piece of architecture that overlooks Lady Bird Lake is about community as much as it is about books. There are reading porches with rooftop seating overlooking Lady Bird Lake if you want to read, get work done, or just take in the views. On the second floor, check out the small gallery space that houses temporary art exhibits. If you need a little refreshment, Cookbook Bar and Cafe has meals made from recipes found in the pages of iconic cookbooks, literary themed cocktails, and demonstrations from touring food authors. If you want to delve deeper, they offer tours on Thursdays and Saturdays at 12:30. Registration begins at noon at the docent station located on the 2nd floor.
