Whoa, This Town Turned Their Abandoned Walmart Into A Library! You Won’t Believe How Big It Is!

What would you do with 125,000 square feet of empty space? (FYI, that’s the size of about 2 1/2 football fields.)

The City of McAllen, Texas decided to fill it with books. When their local Walmart went out of business, they saw it as an opportunity to create the ultimate community meeting place.



Any fears of being unable to fill the space were put to rest in the opening weeks. According to interim director Kate Horan, new registrations and book loans are “through the roof.”

“We used to be really busy on Sunday afternoons,” she said in an interview with Slate. “Now, every day is a Sunday afternoon.”

The McAllen Public Library is now the largest single-story public library in the US. (The award for biggest outright goes to the Library of Congress.)

See how the architects achieved this amazing transformation in this video!

Nope, over Christmas season, yes. Now, nope. I don't think there is a single Wal-Mart that is open 24/7 in Alberta.

Walmart doesn't stay open 24 hours. Maybe there are some but in Phoenix,,the largest capital city in the nation , Walmart stores close at midnight and open up again at 6 in the morning.

West Virginia has some. Small little town near the beach in North Carolina has one. I assumed it was all over. Neither of those markets is bigger than Toronto (or Phoenix). Not sure why they would close in larger centres.

Colville, Washington (a city of 7000) too!

How many Walmart stores are there? My "stab in the dark" guess would be 269 is fewer than 1% of them.

I never really counted but there are several . more than thirty I would guess in the metro area and the surrounding little towns. Seems like there is one around every corner.

I did not know that. I don't think I have ever shopped there. Been further north, and in Pickering, Scarborough (none of which are (or were when I was there) 24 hours. I did not think they did it in Ontario. Will keep that in mind.

(And thanx for the red.)

We have a Walmart Superstore that is empty (of customers) half of the time.

Major Mac & Bayview is in Markham, ON. A 905 community north of city of Toronto. I live in Scarborough (an absorbed city) occupying the far east of Toronto, Pickering is a 905 community outside Toronto to the east. Is this what you are asking?

I suspect he assumed December hours were year around. In December several Walmarts do go 24/7 as a lead up to Christmas.

Does Walter talk out of his A$$ any more than you do?

Go back and show me where I have been wrong in something I have stated to be fact, or if I was wrong, show where I have not admitted it. Take your time.

Oh ya, I believe every Walmart in Calgary was open 24/7 over Christmas season. That is the problem with "assuming" though.
