We finally got around to visiting Quinta Mazatlan, and glad we did before we're leaving this area. the building is beautiful and we started out with a small video about the birds seen on the grounds. Afterwards we walked around the building. They do have a number of activities during the month and if we were longer in the area we probably would attend a talk. The grounds are beautiful, landscaped, but still wild.

This is a stunning library, the largest single story library in the U.S. It has a huge children's area, an art gallery,outside water features and artwork, 200 seat auditorium, cafe, meeting rooms, computers, Spanish language section, and lots more. Farmer's market on Saturday morning and special events. No one would ever guess that the city recycled an old Wal Mart building (when Wal Mart built a larger one) and created this gorgeous gathering place.
