FRENCH VALLEY  — Riverside County Third District Supervisor Chuck Washington and the Riverside County Library System (RCLS) invite the public to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new French Valley Library at 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10 located on the northeast corner of Winchester Road and Skyview Road in the unincorporated area of Riverside County.
“The central location of this new library in the French Valley community will be valuable for everyone, no matter your age,” said Supervisor Chuck Washington. “Every time I take my grandkids to the library, I think I’m just as excited as they are.”
The modern design of the new French Valley Library will be a 25,000 square foot single-story facility situated on a 2.6-acre parcel. The library has been contemporarily designed to meet the communities growing needs.
“The libraries of the 21st century have become essential resource centers with specialized programs for students, seniors, veterans, business owners, job seekers and more. When a library is built, the entire community benefits,” added Supervisor Washington.
Features of the new library include space for a large collection of books and media materials, dedicated zones for teens and young children, a 125 seat multi-use community room, group study rooms, technology areas with charging stations and opportunity rooms for pop-up exhibits and other programs and events. In addition to the library, the property will offer a peaceful outdoor reading and study area.
The Riverside County Library System is a division of the Riverside County Economic Development Agency. For more information, please contact the Riverside County Library System at (951) 369-3003 or visit www.rivlib.net.
