All the Details

Located in southwest Dallas, near the intersection of Interstate 30 and Loop 12, the Arcadia Park Branch Library is one of the city's newest and largest branches. Opened in 2005, it is the first co-location facility with the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) in the city of Dallas. The library serves the students and the supporting DISD staff as a school library and residents of the Arcadia Park community as a public library. The thoughtful architectural design of the building highlighting the beauty of the natural surroundings has garnered praise from professional architectural circles. Sculptor Eliseo S. García designed the architectural frieze at the entrance of the building, which includes a family standing under a tree of learning, a representation of family life as the root of learning, support, and eventual success. A beautiful rainbow glass window about the seating area enhances the children's storytime area. The building has been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification as a high performance green building. The Arcadia Park Branch features regular storytimes for children, Dallas After-School Homework Help (DASH), wireless Internet access, ESL and computer classes for adults, and various educational programs throughout the year.
