You are about to visit the Cerritos Library with the legendary Futurist H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Clues outside the building – the titanium sheathing, the art fountains, the plasma screen displays, the music, the stream of visitors – hint that there may be more surprises in store once you reach your destination. Then, as you enter the library, the experience begins to unfold. Clearly, the ideas in this library are not all tucked neatly away in books; some of them have escaped into the environment. You find yourself on the threshold of an intellectual candy store filled with books, displays, art work, live performances, computers, images, sounds and sensations. You pause just to drink it all in –and then you smile. You know immediately that this place has exciting possibilities. There are discoveries to be made here.
