From The Gold Coast Bulletin/GoldCoast.com:
With a slide, an auditorium and a recording studio, you might not guess the intended use of Helensvale’s latest building.
But the 85,000 books waiting to be stacked in alphabetical order give the game away at the new $22 million library [$19.95 million/USD].
The facility, due to open on July 17, is nearly three times the size of the old library with new features.
The auditorium will seat 200 and there is a media lab, rehearsal rooms and study areas.
Servicing the northern Gold Coast, the library is expected to attract between 1500 and 2000 visitors a day, up from the 800 people a day who used the old one.
