If you have yet to check out the new George W. Hawkes Downtown Library in Arlington, your'e missing out on a very cool experience.
An article by the Star-Telegram shortly after the new facility opened this summer gave the library a big thumbs-up. In addition to the traditional amenities (books, lots of them), the library offers much more.
“The 80,000-square-foot building also includes computer labs and a creative space that includes 3D printers as well as a tech genius bar where patrons can get help downloading e-books to their devices or simply logging on to the Internet,” states the article. In addition, the first-floor Discover Wall (pictured) provides an interactive art installation for children to explore.
IMEG provided engineering design for the new building, which also houses Arlington's city council chambers. Read more.
