TFDL celebrates grand opening

By Geoff MacIntosh

This celebratory bunch throws confetti to mark the grand opening of the Taylor Family Digital Library. The new Taylor Family Digital Library had its grand opening on Oct. 20. In attendance were Alberta Premier Alison Redford and Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi. Priced at just over $200 million, the library is six stories high and the same size as three Canadian football fields. The library boasts an automated book return where books are separated into seven different bins according to their radio frequency identification number. The building promotes academic exploration and experimental learning. However, quiet study space in the library continues to be a problem.
