Surrey library opening - civic pride and excitement

Surrey Central library grand opening Sept. 24The new Surrey Centre Library had its grand opening September 24. Part of the rebranding of central Whalley as the City's core, it's next to the North Surrey Rec Centre, the Surrey Central Skytrain and a block from SFU's Surrey Campus. The new city hall will be built right next to it.

It's generated quite a bit of buzz. The architecture, the concept of a library in a digital era, the revitalized core – all this makes for an ongoing rash of media coverage, both traditional and blogger-types, plus the micro-blogging stuff. It also helps the library is photogenic, follows green building practices and has a famous architect. It has nice exterior angles and a smooth neo-modernist interior.

So what was being said?
