Grand Re-Opening of the Lake Forest Park Library
Today was the grand opening of the expanded and renovated Lake Forest Park Library. The ribbon-cutting celebration was held and then library staff welcomed community leaders and residents to tour the new space.
Originally a small “mall” library, it is now 60% larger thanks to the $172 million library capital bond approved by voters. The renovated space also features a public computer cyber-bar, additional seating and study areas and a multi-purpose meeting room. I like it!
Thanks to Youth Services Librarian Kalee for inviting me to perform magic following the ribbon cutting and ceremonies. Although the library does now have a very nice meeting room, this show was held upstairs at the Third Place Books Community Stage where they have a real stage, theater lighting, and professional sound system. Constance, the Event Coordinator, has always been a huge supporter of library events on the stage.
