Bexar County Commissioners Court on Tuesday approved a lease agreement for BiblioTech to operate its third full branch.  The new branch will be in the Wheatley Choice Phase II development, a mixed-income and mixed-use project currently being constructed on the East Side.  The new branch is expected to open later this year.

 
The new branch will be 4,200 square feet and offer library and technology resources to the community in and around the Wheatley Choice Neighborhood.  It’s the second BiblioTech branch to co-locate within a San Antonio Housing Authority development.  The Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech opened in July 2015 in the Gardens at San Juan Square on the city’s West Side.
