The internet and modern technology have made it so libraries are no longer the go to source for information. However, the city of Frisco is hoping to change that as this weekend they launched their new public library that is like none other. The new library is three times the size of the previous one, and includes high tech amenities and a massive T-Rex model.
On Saturday, the city of Frisco held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Frisco Public Library. The 158,068 square foot building used to be a manufacturing factory for rocket parts, but will now be home to 210 computers, 77 screens, 93 Wi-Fi access points and of course, books.
According to WFAA, the new library features self-checkout, an online reservation system for study and conference rooms, text-confirmed confirmations and AR/VR holographic computers.
The library will also have a “Tiny Town” which includes the Ready to Read Railroad, along with a pretend market, construction site and veterinarian clinic. All of this is centered around a 22-foot tall, 42-foot-long T-Rex model. With this new facility, Frisco residents may be ready to put down the phone and get back to the library.
