Public transit

The Algiers Regional branch is located near the RTA's Algiers Local, General deGaulle, and Algiers Owl Loop bus routes.

Note that it may not be advisable to send young children by themselves to this location by bus. It is adjacent to a very busy shopping center parking lot, and near two very busy multi-lane intersections, lacking pedestrian crossing signals and sidewalks.

Background

Algiers Regional is the bigger library on New Orleans' west bank. It originally opened in 1965, but that building was more or less destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. For several years after Katrina it was housed in temporary modular digs, but now it's in a totally new building that's gleaming and modern-looking—although perhaps lacking the Hubbell Library's personality.
