Library Expansion

San Angelo and Tom Green County leaders agreed on a lease Wednesday that could turn the Hemphill-Wells Building into the county library. San Angelo residents Steve and Pollyanna Stephens said they will donate $2 million toward the $16 million project. The building offers 85,000 square feet of floor space, compared with the 24,000 square feet the library operates with now.

New Mythology Reference for Youth

A recent addition to the reference collection in the Children's area is worthy of note for those upper-grade level reports and readings. Mythlogy A to Z, Revised Edition by Kathleen N. Daly is a three volume set including Greek & Roman, Celtic and Norse Mythology. Entries include major figures, places, stories, objects and themes of each mythology. Clearly written with accounts of stories, social customs, maps and illustrations, each volume is cross-referenced and indexed.
