For $18 million dollars, you think we would have had a better looking building than the one we got.

The Billings Public Library looks like a chip of gray composite board you use on a deck. Nothing about this building stands out and makes you catch your breath.

It was supposed to be this iconic fixture in our city. Instead, it looks like it should be thrown in the chipper.

And, who picked the color? You would have thought that a city that was so concerned about how Walmart blended in with the surroundings would have been more selective.
