There are thousands of abandoned big box stores sitting empty all over America, including hundreds of former Walmart stores.
With each store taking up enough space for 2.5 football fields, Walmart’s use of more than 698 million square feet of land in the U.S. Is one of it's biggest environmental impacts.
But at least one of those buildings has been transformed into something arguably much more useful: The nation’s largest library.
Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle transformed an abandoned Walmart in McAllen, Texas, into a 124,500-square-foot public library, the largest single-floor public library in the United States.
The library is amazing, it has every type of book that you can think off and it even has a computer lab. It might be worth checking it out if you are ever around McAllen, Texas.
