A message from Guillermo C. Nicolas, grandson of Raoul A. Cortez


The Cortez Branch Library, named after pioneer of Spanish language radio and television stations in the United States, Raoul A. Cortez, is turning 40! Situated in southwest San Antonio, Cortez Branch Library has served countless San Antonio area children, teens, and adults over the past 40 years. Continue the legacy with us as we celebrate Cortez Branch Library reaching its 40-year milestone!
