Dutch Church converts.
Now here's a church library!
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.
