Opening of Riverside’s new public library set
RIVERSIDE – (INT) – The City’s new main library has an official opening date.

The doors of the former downtown bus station will open June 26th at 10am.

The 2-story building on Mission Inn Avenue is larger than a supermarket with 60,000 materials in the circulating materials.

The library features an archive reading room, children’s room, innovation center, outdoor terrace, and the Friends of the Riverside Public Library bookstore. With beautiful views of downtown and Mount Rubidoux, visitors are welcome to reading and study rooms, story time areas, laptop kiosks and wireless printing, self-checkout machines, and seating throughout the state-of-the-art facility.

There are 60 laptops for public use, 30 iPads for checkout, over 1,500 photographs in the Archive Photograph Collection, and 4,400 reels of microfilm in the Archive.

“This is more than a just a building, it’s where young minds will transform into brilliance,” Riverside Public Library Director Erin Christmas said.
