The new branch sits near the Apollo Theater and features an Afro-centric design reflective of an African village.
The design meshes six open, circular rooms on the perimeter - symbolicof village huts - nesting against a stunning central circle with atowering, light-filled sky dome. The central area, symbolic of the village center, houses the circulation desk.
Still nothing about the library the City of Buffalo is abandoning on Jefferson Avenue. It's in great shape and never seemed to make John Hannon's list over in the City's Real Estate Division of city property that's for sale. Didn't see a 'for sale' sign today either.
btw...here's the first post I wrote about this library last February. Bad pics, I know.
