Commented on Main Library Campus 1 year, 3 months ago
Didn't have a chance to add a comment here first; the traffic congestion past the library and onto the BSU campus got worse every year for the 18 years I taught there. There is little reason for BSU students to access a public library as the campus library is a fully stocked resource for students. So, again, who is perceiving that the public library has any connection to the campus? It might look good on paper to call this a cultural district, but what is the practical value in this linkage?

Programs for young children are always welcome in a library, possibly book groups, but again, the parking issue will likely impact usage.

People go to a library for peace and quiet, and to find books and media of interest to them. Do they look out the windows? Probably for about 5 seconds. I agree with others that the window wall represents a problem for birds, not to mention the issue of light on a book collection. It would have to be a very expensive filtered window material not to impact the collection and users.

Rarely, I am an ebook user.

Should a library be a gateway to a city? Who is asking these questions? I have never visited a local library in any city I have visited over my lifetime. It doesn't mean I don't like libraries, it means I am more likely to visit a museum like our tiny art museum.
