AUSTIN, TX – Family historians, scholars, students and others interested in what is behind the ornate brass doors of the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building just east of the Capitol will soon have more opportunities for discovery.

Beginning January 11, 2014, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) will expand its hours of operation to better accommodate researchers. The agency’s three public service areas – the Texas State Archives, Texas Family Heritage Research Center, and the Reference and Information Center – will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the second Saturday of each month.
