I got a tour of the new branch today, and it's really nice. Lots and lots of light, even on an overcast day. The high ceilings are nice, and I really liked all the wood they put on the ceiling (I did spot one place where the cheated with the pattern - it drove me crazy). The bathroom is unisex, with large doors on each stall for privacy. There's a dedicated makerspace room as well; the first outside of Milner/Enterprice square. They have a nice 3D printer (Ultimaker 3), a Cricut Maker, a few iMacs, a "conversion" area (vinyl, cassettes, VHS), and a computerized sewing machine that also does quilting stuff (Brother, model CS6000i).

Dave, just one correction; the opening is November 8th, but the grand opening (with politicians and cake) is on Nov 23.
