City of Orange is about to reopen their new Central Library

I just received the following from Kim Haman:

Good morning! Like many readers out there, I’m a Library-lover. The books, the free access to technology–it’s all great. Well, for the last two years, the Library I used most, the Orange Main Library, has been closed for renovations. Now-at long last–it’s finally re-opening! It will re-open to the public on April 21st as the Orange Public Library & History Center.

According to the city of Orange website, the new Library has been completely re-done and the space has more than doubled. They’ve added a History Walk, where people can learn about the early days of Orange and a historic fountain–apparently the oldest on in the city. From what I’m told, the inside is spectacular–more than double the size of the old one–up to 45,000 square feet. There are several community meeting rooms, a whole new Children’s Library, a local History Center, among other things. Also, the new Library will have the largest automated self-checkout and book sorting system in the western U.S.

I thought your Orange readers, and even people in nearby cities, would be interested in this info. The Grand Re-Opening is April 21st at the Orange Main Library & History Center from 10:00am to 6:00pm. The doors open about 11:30am. It should be a pretty cool event–and I can’t wait to use the Library again!

I used to drive by the City of Orange Library all the time and I’ve seen the construction trucks and cranes build the new central library. This is a positive step for the citizens of the City of Orange. – Mike R.

P.S: The Anaheim Angels of California won their home opener 4-1 over the Arlington Rangers of Texas (See, even I can still make fun of the odd naming scheme)
