There’s an amazing library building in Kansas! Local residents were asked to nominate influential books which represented Kansas city and the library exterior was then built to represent a giant bookshelf.
A similar feature is in place at Cardiff Public Library in Wales, although in their case it’s only temporary while renovations are taking place. To read more about it and see pictures of the libraries go to http://deputy-dog.com/2007/11/30/can-you-spot-the-library/
It’s interesting to read the positive comments from the public including this one:
“This is brilliant, brilliant stuff. How can they make this temporary? Never in my life have I seen a more compelling argument for the beauty of a library.”
