Abandoned Walmart? New Library!


Now that's a fab idea! This abandoned Walmart in McAllen, Texas was redesigned and remodeled into a new public library. Library registration went up 23% afterwards...that's the best news of all!

  3. Excellent use of an unused building into something incredible! Reminds me of home when they converted the old grocery store into the new library. While I loved the wide open spaces of the new I missed the character of the old.
