Glass panels will continue to fall from Montreal's Grande Bibliotheque

The Sky Is Falling! Going to the library could be dangerous to your health.

The $98-million Grande Bibliotheque - Quebec's main library and archive - has been falling apart a few pieces at a time.

The library, located in the downtown area near the bus station, opened with great fanfare in spring of 2005.
