[ HPL, Montrose branch: "The complex that now houses the Freed-Montrose branch of the Houston Public Library used to be the Central Church of Christ. Though they appear to be separate institutions, The Campanile encompasses the library, several restaurants and pubs, and the occasional confectionery. All are unified by a gloriously thick carpet of ivy clinging to the exterior, lending history to the library and character to the eateries. Inside the library, the structure's namesake campanile no longer chimes. It has been transformed into a staircase leading to the mezzanine level. This has been designed not to block the light beaming through the tall church windows which give the reader a sense of warmth and friendliness..."
