New ocean-themed library debuts in Imperial Beach

From The San Diego Union-Tribune

“With a look and feel so reminiscent of the city’s small beach town, even the mayor’s vision of the new Imperial Beach Library was blown out of the water.“If I would have brain-stormed the most perfect building we could ever have, I couldn’t have come up with this,” Mayor Serge Dedina said at last weekend’s grand opening.The coastal-themed building at 810 Imperial Beach Boulevard threw open its doors and welcomed an enthusiastic crowd of more than 300 people on April 15.Built for $8.5 million, three times the size of the existing facility, the library is expected to accommodate residents for the next 25 to 30 years.”
