Corps joins Fort Irwin leaders to cut the ribbon on new library
From left to right, Brig. Gen Curt Taylor, commanding general of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin; Maj. Kevin Stucker, deputy commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District; and Col. Jason Clarke, Fort Irwin garrison commander, pose for a picture in front of the new Fort Irwin Library – Building 333 – following a March 9 ribbon-cutting ceremony signifying the opening of the facility. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District’s Fort Irwin Resident Office managed the construction of the new $6-million facility, which replaces a more than 25-year-old library on the installation. The new library is energy-efficient and LEED-Silver certified. Like many of the other facilities the Corps has built at Fort Irwin, the landscape around the library incorporates low-volume irrigation methods and xeriscaping techniques.
