An abandoned Walmart in McAllen, Texas has been transformed into America's largest 0ne-story library. It even won the International Interior Design Association's 2012 Library Interior Design Competion. We need more libraries like this.
The library even has an acoustically separated lounge for teens as well as 6 teen computer labs, 16 public meeting spaces, 14 public study rooms, 64 computer labs, 10 children’s computer labs and 2 genealogy computer labs. Other new features include self check-out units, an auditorium, an art gallery, a used bookstore and a cafe.
