The new Diamond Bar Library will open July 28, 2012. The current library located at 1061 S. Grand Ave will close Saturday, June 30 and will re-open at its new location on Saturday, July 28, 2012.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver-certified Diamond Bar Library will be situated on the first floor of the new Diamond Bar City Hall located at 21800 E. Copley Drive, Diamond Bar, CA 91765. County of Los Angeles Supervisor Knabe provided $5 million dollars towards the library project.
The library will increase in size almost 100 percent from 9,935 square feet to 18,245 square feet and offer ample parking, spacious reading areas, a new community meeting room, two group study rooms, teen center and
children’s area. The outdoor reading garden featuring a fountain, beautiful landscaping, comfortable seating and furniture was made possible in part by a very generous $80,000 donation by the Friends of the Diamond Bar Library. There will be separate adult and children’s sections featuring state-of-the-art technology, online computer terminals, free WiFi access for laptops and other mobile devices.
The building will also include a bookstore operated by the Friends of the Diamond Bar Library.
