The new Central Library is probably a good idea. But “state of the art” indicates a waste of our money. A good, clean, adequate facility would suffice. How many patrons use the facility now for study or research? Build what is needed and would be used fully.
Those people so adamant about building a new library in Wichita have had their brains scrambled by driving here with the terrible streets.
