The job building a new, larger, library for the community called Lincoln Acres, a small community just south of National City, stretched into January this year. While children played on new recreation equipment, Supervisor Greg Cox, on the 26th, celebrated the opening of the new mid-sized library more than two years past the groundbreaking in August of 2010.
The old small building, the smallest library building in the county, had lasted since 1947.
There is now more room for students to come in and be motivated to learn. Popular discussions can happen at meetings held in the new community room.
Outside, youth can play on basketball courts.
Locals did not have to settle for the small collection housed in the old building. There will, however, be less talk about goats that used to walk on the lot. Instead, the building paid for with county tax money gives them a place to take steps to succeed aim life, and get a job.
Stops in to the library that settled in as the civic center for Lincoln Ares can give a visitor an opportunity to find a comfortable lounge seat to sit in. Additions to the book, CD and DVD collection increased the number of check-out opportunities by thousands. Visitors can focus on computer studies at one of the 10 work stations. Both public use laptops and free wireless Internet are available at the library.
