McAllen, Texas officials had the right idea: Putting a library in an old WalMart building. Here are some pics of the interior:
Isn't that wonderful? I am a HUGE fan of repurposing, and this is the best! A typical WalMart Supercenter covers about 2.5 football fields worth of space, so that is no small library! It cost the city $24 million to renovate, and has won awards for design.
This is the best use of an abandoned building that I have seen in a long time. Well done, McAllen, Texas!!
