In our effort to highlight the libraries that we visit while on our travels, this post is a part of our ongoing blog series titled Dispatches from Texas Libraries where we will raise up a library and the work they are doing for their community.

This session is a part of the Small Library Management Training Program; registration is still open for several of the remaining sessions in the Leadership & Management Essentials series.

Art in the Victoria Public LibraryI want to extend my thanks to the library director, Dayna Williams-Capone, for allowing the class to share the library’s Computer Workstations at the Victoria Public Librarymeeting room space for the duration of the workshop. The library is clearly a vibrant hub of the community, evidenced by the patrons using the space. As I walked through the library, I was constantly reminded of the local culture, particularly represented by the colorful art and décor on the walls from the Victoria area.

Children's Tunnel at the Victoria Public LibraryThe Victoria Public Library provides a space that responds to its patrons’ varying needs. The entrance to the children’s area is fitted with tunnels for children to crawl through, a quiet area is designated for the reading of newspapers and magazines, and computer workstations provide privacy to those who use them.
