What do a children's librarian, a city council member, a construction worker, and a world-famous architect have in common? They all worked together to create an amazing place: a public library! Come tour the New Central Library in Minneapolis, Minnesota--designed by the renowned architect Cesar Pelli. You'll be part of the action from the initial computer renderings, through the approval process, the construction feats, and the opening preparations. Interviews with key players--and a foreword from the architect--make this story even more informative. While watching this twenty-first-century marvel take shape, you'll also discover many fascinating facts about public libraries, including how historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Melvil Dewey, and Andrew Carnegie influenced their development. It's a story you just have to check out!
