Sup Travellers?! While surfing the web I found this really COOL story on Web Urbanist about what the city of McAllen in Texas did with an abandoned WalMart. 

Instead of letting the giant store sit vacant, they did something amazing. They transformed it into the largest single-floor public library in America.

The library 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.

I guess this library justifies the saying that everything is bigger in Texas [LOL]. Who wants to take a trip to the library? 

My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
