EDMONTON — Some Edmontonians who got a peek inside their city’s new downtown library say it’s what’s inside that matters.
The Stanley A. Milner Library has opened its doors to the public, four years after closing for $85 million in renovations.
The building received some backlash last year after people got a look at the new, modern angular structure and online memes compared it to a military tank.
Carmelita Ryan-Kelly took a tour of the library and says it definitely looks funny from the outside.
But she says it’s not funny on the inside and described it as being state-of-the-art.
Tickets are sold out for 15-minute tours of the building.
