Last weekend we went to the Mount Pleasant area, which used to be our old neighborhood a few years ago. Things sure have changed! The area was considered a not-so-good part of town 10 or 20 years back, but so many new buildings seemed to have popped up, and the neighborhood has definitely been revitalized over the last 2 or 3 years.
We paid a visit to the brand new Mount Pleasant Library, which just opened in the new year. The old library was previously in the sketchy Kingsgate Mall, and it was really old and worn out.
The new library is beautiful and modern and is right next to the community center. The space has a lot of natural light from the floor to ceiling windows, and has a wonderful, friendly feel.
