Lileks at the library

In his blog today, columnist James Lileks talks about his first visit to the new Minneapolis Central Library building. (Scroll about 55% of the way down the page to get to the library part.)

Great comment below a photo of the children’s wing: “Because nothing says lazy hours spent reading in a warm cozy library like a wall of concrete.” Looking at that picture almost makes me want to bang my head repeatedly against that wall.
