San Bernardino County Chino Branch Library

Work is still underway this week on the inside renovation of the San Bernardino County Chino Branch Library. The facility, on the northwest corner of Central Avenue and D Street, will re-open Feb. 22.

A grand re-opening of the San Bernardino County Chino Branch Library will be held 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 22 at 13180 Central Ave. (corner of D Street).

The event will showcase an interactive children’s area, new books and crafts. The first 100 guests will receive a free bag.

The re-opening comes after a nearly three-month closure in which the library’s interior is repainted, carpet and hard surface flooring replaced, and new furniture installed, including a new circulation desk. Fabric on book stack ends are being re-surfaced, a new children’s area wall mural installed, interior doors replaced, lighting upgraded, and accessibility improvements made.

During a tour of the library by the Chino Community Services Commission and members of the public in August, city staff members said a wooden carving of jungle animals in the children’s reading area would be replaced with murals of Chino Airport and farms.

The library staff has been working at other county branch locations during the renovation.

The county leases the building from the city of Chino.

Cost of the city/county joint project was not available at press time.

I am very happy that the grand Re-Opening of the San Bernardino County Chino Branch Library will be held.

It's an amazing library, where you can find a variety of books on any subject. There are also many foreign books, but since I only speak English, the TranslateGoogle helps me in reading foreign books. It is very comfortable and comfortable.

I hope that after repair the library will be even better and will be visited by many people.
