The old Dallas Public Library was a part of the Statler Hilton Hotel. “According to Dallas’ AIA Guide to Dallas, the Statler and next door’s former Dallas Public Library, designed by George Dahl in 1953, make-up the “best block of 1950s architecture in the city.”” (source)
I previously posted about the Statler Hilton (and it’s questionable future) — the Library was part of the same tour. There was something very serene about this empty building. I could imagine hunting for my favorite read and finding a quiet corner, or doing research and spreading across a mid-century table. Either way, I’d be sure to use the book elevator to ensure the librarians had an easier time with things.
