San Antonio Central Library
The San Antonio Central Library (also known as the "red enchilada") is a modern addition to this old town. It was completed in 1995, at which time there was much controversy over the building color. With vibrant purple and yellow accenting its red exterior, the new library is hard to miss and looks fantastic. Within its walls lie a six-story atrium, a genealogy collection, an art gallery and a terrace for special events. And as this is a library, you will of course also find a plethora of books, as well as an excellent children's library and a wonderful media center.
When you visit downtown San Antonio, never park in unattended parking lots on level ground, where you pay the metal box. If there is not an attendant on site, and if you don't get a receipt, your car will most likely be booted or towed. The average response time for the private enforcement company to remove the boot, is 20-45 minutes. Also, you will be forced to pay over $100 to have the company remove the boot, even if you have paid the full parking price in advance as posted.
