No – Walmart has not gone crazy. The winner of the 2012 Library Interior Design Awards created a blueprint of what they would do to an abandoned Walmart. The blueprint became a library! Community meeting rooms, children’s’ library, adult services and a staff area all have their own section. The entire space is the size of two football fields making this library the largest single story library!
There are a lot of abandoned buildings in my city that would be great to turn into libraries. I have a building behind my house that is small but would be perfect for a book store or tutor spot. I would like bookstores as numerous in hoods as liquor stores! Now do you have any idea how I can make that happen?
Peace and luv!
