12:00 Noon, New Garberville Library Opens
Wednesday, October 13, 2021
The new Garberville Library building opens today at noon! Wear your mask and come inside to see the new library and pick out some reading material. The opening ceremony is a bit earlier at 10:00 AM. The library is housed in the newly built Garberville Campus Complex building, where there is also a meeting room, restrooms, and a Sheriff's Substation with a separate entrance. The 'Campus' idea is that when more public services are combined into one area, the County saves utility and maintenance costs, and the community saves time and travel expense as more services are available close to home.
The new building is energy-efficient and fully ADA accessible. The library features lots of new books (as well as old favorites), computer stations for public use, high-speed wireless internet both inside and out in the parking lot, a multimedia system for special events, a comfortable children’s section, and a reading and study area. The complex also includes a conference room that will be available for a variety of community programs and library special events, public restrooms, and the Sheriff's substation.
Below, you can see a diagram of the floor plan, showing the entry ramps, and entry doors for the Library portion and Sheriff's portion of the building. If you enter the first door, you find yourself in the central hallway that leads to the Library. Off the hallway, the conference room is the first door on your left, restrooms are the next two doors, and the books are straight ahead!. To visit the Sheriff, enter by the second door from the building's front porch.
