The internet is tearing apart Edmonton’s new library
The new Edmonton Public Library is getting some very mixed reactions since being unveiled. Does it hold books? Yes! Then why are people so upset? Well, for starters it looks like it could barrel through the front lines of battle with a head full of steam. Next, Edmonton has had to hear about just how damn beautiful the new Central Library in Calgary is for a full year. Finally, it’s very grey, something Edmonton doesn’t need any more of.
Twitter Reacts to the Edmonton Public Library

Honestly, this library looks like it’d beat up nerds, not invite them in to further some knowledge. Can you imagine growing up with this being the first iteration of a public library that you encountered? Books would not seem friendly.

Who would have thunk the next thing in the battle of Alberta would be libraries? Edmonton’s not messing around and brought a tank to the fight. #yeglibrary pic.twitter.com/N9ByWCPD4K — Craig Pfau (@craigpfau) July 16, 2019
Hey, maybe this isn’t the final form of the Edmonton Public Library? After all, a few more layers of armour and it might end up kinda pretty.
