Perhaps your New Year’s resolution is to read more, maybe even to read a certain number of books in 2018.

We can think of no better place to read in 2018 than the newly opened Central Austin Library on 710 W. César Chávez St. downtown.

Although the beautiful new building officially opened its doors in 2017, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it one of your favorite Austin places in 2018.

If you haven’t been there yet, freshman photojournalism student Olivia Watts takes you there in the first of our new weekly series, The Tuesday Top 10.

Each Tuesday, we will feature a 10-image photo essay that tells a story, profiles a person, makes an argument or takes you to an amazing place.
