Nice place to stop and look around. The building has unique architecture and is great for walking through and enjoying the scenery. A cool glass elevator takes you up to the rooftop garden and there are shops to browse.

We were walking around downtown and saw the interesting architecture so went closer. The modern library with Cafe, art museum displays and small shops was a great way to spend some time. Wish we had this library in our town!

What a beautiful contemporary public space. I love that the city spent the money to build this type of public space. I love all the fairs and festivals conducted here. If you haven't been there yet, you should go!
