Rosenberg Library has a wealth of historical information about Galveston available either online or in the library. One of my favorite galleries is the James M. Lykes Maritime Gallery - http://rosenberg-library-museum.org/exhibits/galleries/lykes/treasure.island/lykes.htm - permanent exhibit. It has nautical artifacts from its steamship company and a beautiful art glass window depicting the Doctor Lykes, the first ship used by Lykes Line.
You will also see special displays like the McGivney Award Winners, "Abstract Egret" and other traveling exhibits constantly changing. Online you can view online exhibits including, Seawall and Storm Exhibit and more Galveston history. Speaking of history, if you are wanting an in-depth study of Galveston and Texas, visit the Galveston & Texas History Center. Look around while you are walking or sitting in the library and view paintings of all kinds.
The Rosenberg Library is the oldest public library in Texas, opening its doors on June 22, 1904 opening on Henry Rosenberg's birthday, one of its patrons. The library has Wi-Fi access.
