Fresno County’s newest library, Betty Rodriguez Regional Library, will have its grand opening from 1 to 4 p.m. Jan. 9 in east-central Fresno near Shields and Cedar avenues.
The library, named after community volunteer Betty Rodriguez, is at 3040 N. Cedar Ave. and replaces the Cedar Clinton Branch Library.
In addition to books, CDs, DVDs and other traditional library materials, there will be an Innovation Lab with a 3D printer, special rooms for studying and community events, and an Early Learning Center for children.
“This branch transition is the library’s acknowledgment that Fresno deserves modern facilities to meet its residents’ diverse needs,” said county Librarian Laurel Prysiazny. “At the same time, the Betty Rodriguez Regional Library will continue the community engagement traditions advocated by Mrs. Rodriguez.”
