F’ville checks back into Library
farmersville – Tulare County Library invites everyone to celebrate the grand opening of the new Farmersville Branch Library on Saturday, April 22 in Farmersville. The grand opening ceremony begins at 11 a.m. followed by a ribbon cutting. Festivities begin at 10 a.m. with a resource fair coordinated by the Boys and Girls Club of Farmersville. Following the ribbon cutting, the library will be open for check out, library cards, crafts, and story time until 2 p.m.
The event will feature distinguished speakers including Kuyler Crocker, Tulare County Supervisor District 1; Debbie Lagomarsino, Lea Conmigo and Read for Life; Alice Lopez, Farmersville Unified School District; Mayor Paul Boyer and Greg Gomez, Farmersville City Council; Tara Adams from the Office of Assemblyman Devon Mathis; and others. Darla Wegener, county librarian, will have the honor of hosting this event welcoming everyone to the new Farmersville Branch.
Farmersville, a community of 11,000, is located east of Visalia and south of Highway 198. Thanks to Lea Conmigo, a group of concern citizens, local community groups, the City of Farmersville, the Farmersville Unified School District, and the Tulare County Library, the new branch will be able to provide a portal to more information and resources for residents. The approximately 1,540-square foot space located in the Farmersville Community Center will house books, DVDs, magazines, and computers to assist the Farmersville community with their informational, recreational, self-educational, and cultural needs.
The Tulare County Library is proud of Farmersville returning to our library system. Celebrate with library staff, citizens, guests, and other county staff on this opening day at the new branch, located at 623 N. Avery Ave., in Farmersville. Thanks to the City of Farmersville receiving a CDBG grant, the library will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and staffed by library assistant Janet Soriano.
