The special event takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature information about the different fun and educational literacy storytime programs, refreshments and craft activities.
The Storytime Room complements the library’s continuing efforts to develop children’s reading comprehension skills and love for reading at an early age.
The renovation, which began in June, transformed the Friends Community Room into a picturesque place etched with a Saddleback Valley orange grove and mountain backdrop.
“I smiled when I saw the proposed renderings for the remodel of the story time/community room,” said Dr. Catherine Bailey, a local psychologist. “I knew right away that the remodel would help to make reading an inviting, pleasurable, shared activity that kids can do with their parents and other adults. The former room was like a blank canvas that needed to be developed into an exciting stage backdrop against which stories come to life. This remodel will make that happen. It is inviting, engaging and will stimulate young imaginations and places reading squarely in a ‘fun environment.’”
The public is invited to attend this special grand opening that will be held at the library at 100 Civic Center. For more information, call 949-830-7100, ext. 5107.
