You’ll never guess what the photo above used to be.


No, guess.



Formerly a Wal-Mart store in McAllen, Texas it stands at 124,500 square feet.  It’s the largest single-story library ever in the United States. It contains a coffee shop, conference rooms and a copy center among other things to fill it. The town of McAllen has fewer than 150,000 residents. I’m assuming most of them hang out at this cool center of books. I would have a chair with my name on it there.

Don’t you just love a super transformation? I certainly do.
