San Diego County opened its newest branch library on Saturday, this time in Imperial Beach.
With a ribbon cutting ceremony that included library souvenirs for visitors, local leaders, including County Supervisor Greg Cox, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, and County Library Director Migell Acosta, proudly opened the new Imperial Beach Library at 810 Imperial Beach Blvd.
The new library was designed to blend in with the Imperial Beach’s small beach town feel. This includes design elements mimicking waves, an exterior beach cottage look and a replica Woody station wagon in the children’s section.
The 14,800-square-foot facility features an expanded materials collection, a large children and family area and a teen space with study rooms.
A large community room for events and meetings and a Friends of the Library bookstore were also added to the new digs.
The library is open Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays. Hours on Monday and Thursday are from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
