"The Texas State Library and Archives Commission is undergoing a multi-year renovation of its main facility in Austin, the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building. We are all very excited to accommodate the growing size of our archival collections as well as modernize our facility, which has not undergone a major renovation since it was built in 1961.
We will remain open during the renovation, but we will soon begin the relocation of resources and service areas. For safety and efficiency concerns, we must change our hours of operation. Beginning October 1, 2006, the Genealogy Collection will be open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and will be closed Saturdays and Sundays."
