Library Seen as Way to Give Downtown Zip

hollysue writes “From the Columbian in Vancouver, WA comes an article about how the city hopes a new main library will help revitalize its downtown area:

“Downtowns are a place for people to live, work, play and shop. But even the district’s advocates say Vancouver still has a way to go on the play and shopping pieces.

A 90,000-square-foot library, which took a giant step forward when voters approved a $43 million bond measure in September, could provide an infusion of people when it’s built as part of the $165 million Riverwest project.”
