Book drop and windows
First the book drop is difficult to use if your vehicle isn’t a compatible size. I usually have to get out of my SUV to return books. The location seems unwieldy as well.
Second, I agree that the entire bldg is not inviting and doesn’t flow well. I grew up in Fbks and the library on Cowles was a favorite spot. The views outside and the flow thru the library was fabulous. The other library that I particularly enjoyed was at Cornell university. On the bottom floor was a large open section with chairs looking out a bank of windows that overlooked the city. It was a fantastic place to read, study, sleep ;). There were rooms off the area with glass walls I to the main room. These rooms were for group study so as not to disturb other students. So those are two of my favorite most inviting libraries.
