You’ll Never Guess What This Small Town In Texas Did With An Abandoned Wal-Mart Building

When’s the last time you visited your local public library? It probably isn’t a very exciting excursion. What about your neighborhood Walmart? A trip there most likely doesn’t have you shaking with anticipation either. Well, both of the above statements are about to change, because this library in McAllen is a 126,000 square-foot abandoned Walmart – the largest single-story public library in America, right here in a tiny, unassuming Texas town. Even if you’re the most die-hard hater of reading, you’ll marvel at the building’s size and the sheer amount of books surrounding you.

What are your thoughts on this library?
