Largest west of Mississipi?[edit]

I have been to the Dr. King Library, and while it is quite big, I highly doubt that it is the largest library west of the Mississippi. That sentence comes directly from the SJPL's website... nowhere else, can someone verify this? I'll try to do it myself, but help would be appreciated. Nevhood 20:52, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

sorry, the article is fine... SJPL's site is a little misleading --Nevhood 20:56, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

When this library was built there was a significant amount of debate regarding the merits of combining a public library and a university library under a single roof. Does anyone have reference to the articles in the SJ Mercury news of this? There also were several architectural critiques of the building. The original MLK library was in front of the SJ Convention Center. I know one of the criticisms of the new public library was that the light rail no longer stops right in front of the building. The art installations also were thought to be very interesting, I cannot remember the artist. I believe the construction costs were higher than anticipated... and it was a public project.
