Dutch Church converts.


Now here's a church library!
An article at  arcilook.com says "the architects managed to convert a holy space into a knowledge fountain."

Another article notes that the 13th century church in Maastricht, Netherlands  "has been briefly used as a parish, then a warehouse, then an archive, then a giant parking lot for bicycles (not such a terrible idea) and finally made over into a bookstore"

As lovely as it its,  I'd rather see a functioning church in the space.
