City officials and community members gathered to celebrate the opening of the new Imperial Beach Library Saturday morning.
County Supervisor Greg Cox, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge, Dedina and County Library Director Migell Acosta were present at the opening ceremony, according to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.
The design of the library reflects the culture of the small beach town with design elements imitating ocean waves, an exterior beach cottage look and a replica Woody station wagon placed in the children’s section, said county officials.
