Can a Library be a Vacation Destination?
According to a recent New York Times article, the answer is yes! "52 Places to Go in 2019" was published on January 9th, 2019 ranking Calgary, Alberta in Canada as number 20--not for its annual Stampede or reputed arts and culture scene but for its library. The Calgary Central Library's redesign was completed in November of 2018 for no less than $245 million CAN and apparently is enough of a reason to dust of the ol' passport and take a trip across the border. Could the Gottesman Libraries one day be enough to outshine Broadway, the Statue of Liberty, or Yankee Stadium as a main draw for tourists?
