New Verona library described in the press

Is it just me, or does this seem like a strange way for the Wisconsin State Journal to describe the new Verona library?

Other libraries might have more books, faster computers, more meeting space or a quieter reading room.But topping the view provided by a more than two-story bank of windows at the new Verona Public Library will be tough for any library to match.Visitors taking a break from reading or surfing the net through the library's wireless network may look out through the v-shaped bank of windows and see a hawk, wild flowers or changing cloud patterns above.

Is is so strange? I don't know. Untraditional, perhaps, but patrons have different reasons going to different libraries. I specifically go to the LIS library for the pretty view and comfy couches. Maybe a beautiful scenic view will be successful in drawing patrons from the area.
