"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
You would think with all his campaigning he wouldn't have any trouble raising the money to get it built. They also want to have a Museum for him. Myself I think it should go to Hawaii. That's where he was living before he ever came here.
I am even wondering if he will come back here to live. Since he doesn't have to many friends around here.
Does anyone under 50 actually go to those things anymore - other then the homeless who want someplace to sleep in the day?
I loved libraries when I was younger - now they seem almost totally superfluous.
If there are things you can find in a library that you cannot find online - they ain't much, I assume.
Why don't they just do what libraries like this are really for - glorified statues to ex-POTUS's...so just build a big ass statue and move on.
Then America can elect the next totally useless POTUS that they can built a statue/library to him/her when they are through wrecking the country just a little bit more.

Who's Funding Bush's Library? - Money coming in during presidency raises concerns over quid pro quo(Newser) – President Bush's coy refusal to name the mystery donors helping to erect his $200 million presidential library is problematic, writes David Corn in Mother Jones' MoJo blog. Though the law doesn't require him to reveal names, his actions raise serious ethical questions. "What's problematic is the prospect of a sitting president obtaining foreign cash for a pet project and not disclosing it," argues Corn.
Corn suggests that Saudi Arabia's royal family—which reportedly funded both George HW Bush's and Bill Clinton's libraries—is a likely contributor, and worries that it's "an easy way for these foreigners to curry favor." He also points out that while still in office, Bush could "hit up American corporations and individuals looking to score points with the White House."
