The city of Komaki, Aichi Prefecture, has officially scrapped a plan to build a next-generation public library in collaboration with video rental giant Tsutaya after the majority of its residents voted it down in a referendum earlier this month.

The city announced Tuesday that it would terminate its partnership with Culture Convenience Club Co. (CCC), which runs Tsutaya, to build what was dubbed the “Tsutaya Library.”
