An Interview with Austin's Library Director, Brenda Branch

No one is more excited than the staff at The Austin Review about the new central library being built in downtown Austin. It will serve as a centerpiece for arts and culture and propel us further along the path of becoming a world-class literary city. To learn more about the library, and other exciting plans, we decided to chat with Library Director Brenda Branch. We thank her and her entire team for all the great work they are doing for our city.

The Austin Review: You are Austin's fourth Library Director. What does a Library Director do day-to-day?

Brenda Branch: Serving as Austin Public Library Director is the best job on earth. I get to combine my passion for literacy and my love of books to help library users connect with the materials and information they need to improve their lives.
