About the Living Room


The Otis and Rosie Brown Living Room at the George W. Hawkes Arlington Public Library in downtown Arlington, Texas, greets all visitors when they step through the door. Just like its namesake living room where the family and friends from the neighborhood gathered for meals, support, and fellowship at Otis and Rosie's house in Arlington, the Living Room at the library provides a comfortable and welcoming special space to study, read, visit, and relax.
