The Lincoln Acres Library, which used to be the tiniest library in the San Diego County system, will begin a new chapter on Saturday. The library, located in the National City area, was recently rebuilt in collaboration between neighborhood residents and County Supervisor Greg Cox, a release announced Thursday.
Cox and dozens of community residents will celebrate a grand opening from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday of the new Lincoln Acres Library, which now includes wireless internet, laptops for patrons, an expanded children’s area, a park and a playground.
The new library will also have an office for Sheriff’s deputies and a community room that will be used for parties, meetings and events, according to the release.
The grand opening celebration will include a salsa performance by Alma Latina Dance Company, a performance by The Roman Watchdogs, and a rock group featuring a youth that regularly visits the Lincoln Acres Library, the release said.
