Better Use of Space

A border town named McAllen recently had a Walmart go out of business.  The city was left with a giant empty building and they decided to convert it into a library.  It is about the size of 2.5 football fields and is the largest one-story library in the country.

Within the first month of opening, library registrations increased by 23%.
