The grand opening was an exciting day for Eureka. The new and expanded branch of the library is well laid out and will provide an excellent spot to check out books, use the computers or sit and read.

@Joe Blanner: Very much agreed! The new corner area is a nice office-away-from-office spot at which to work, too.

Great point! I never thought of that. I now have a new favorite office away from the office work spot. Thanks!
