ABANDONED WALMART BECOMES
BIGGEST LIBRARY IN USA
When going through almost every town in the United States, you are bound to find at least one Wal-Mart.
But what happens when a Wal-Mart closes down? Although this doesn’t seem to happen very often, it leaves behind a very large, vacant building. Most cities don’t want to let this type of building just sit there. In McAllen, Texas their Wal-Mart did close their doors leaving a large building vacant. Rather than letting this store just sit there, they did something amazing. Check out the photos below of this Wal-Mart turned library! It’s now the largest single floor library in America! Very impressive!
Inside you’ll find a cafe, a used book store, an auditorium, along with self checkout stations to make it a great experience. They even updated the outside landscaping and building’s exterior to match with the modern design inside.
Clancy's comment: Well done, Texas.
