The new library at Palomar College will have its grand opening on Friday, Feb. 22.

SAN MARCOS – From the fourth-story views to state-of-the-art computer labs to reference desks, book stacks and study nooks on every floor, the new Library Learning Resource Center at Palomar College was bustling with students during the first week of the spring 2019 semester.

"This beautiful new building is a stellar example of Palomar's commitment to innovation and building for the future," Dr. Joi Lin Blake, superintendent and president of Palomar College, said. "We were proud to welcome our students into their new library this week, and we look forward to welcoming the community to celebrate its official grand opening later this month."

The ceremony, scheduled for 2 p.m., Friday, Feb. 22, will be held on the plaza in front of the new building, with refreshments and remarks by Palomar College officials, as well as tours for guests.

The first week of school was also the facility's long-awaited campus debut, after library and facilities staff spent the holiday break putting the finishing touches on and moving into the building.

At 85,000 square feet and four stories tall, the structure is a striking new presence on a campus that has been transformed over the last decade, with the implementation of Proposition M, the $694 million ballot measure approved by voters in 2006.
