McGirt ExteriorThe McGirt-Horton Branch is a 10,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Phillips and Woodbriar avenues.

One wing of the building is designed for teens with a video lounge area, sound booth and a multimedia lab area. There are also two covered exterior spaces totaling almost 3,000 square feet, accessed from inside the library. One space is for teens and the other is for adults and children.

There are more than 30 public computers with Microsoft applications (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) as well as Internet access. The computers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A library card is required for computer use. 

Want to learn more about computers but not sure where to start? Join us for Computer Commandos every Monday morning at 10 am. Here we cover everything from Microsoft Office programs, to email, and online navigation. 

If you are looking to have a more specific tech question answered then we can help. Tech Navigators are here to work through a wide range of technology based questions from how to use our online resources, to accessing e-books, or understanding digital job applications.  Call the branch for more information!

The children’s area contains special interactive features that encourage discovery and literacy. The Special Collections area includes the Library's African-American collection. 

McGirt-Horton offers meeting space with seating for 50 people. The building also features a snack/vending area with seating and tables.

This branch offers a broad range of programming that includes storytimes for toddlers and preschoolers as well as focused teen programming. Adult programs include the McGirt-Horton Book Discussion Group. For specific dates of events, visit our online Calendar of Events.
