Across Young Street from Dallas City Hall is the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library. Cross Young at Ervay Street.
The Central Library was built in 1982 and where City Hall seems to lean forward, the library seems to lean backward. Two sculptures rest at the front of the building: Textured Screen by Harry Bertoia and Square Forms with Circle by Barbara Hepworth.
Inside the Central Library are several special exhibits. An original copy of the Declaration of Independence and a First Folio of Shakespeare are part of their collection.
