Corps joins Fort Irwin leaders to cut the ribbon on new library
A welcome sign greets patrons March 9 at the new Fort Irwin Library at Fort Irwin, California, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony signifying the opening of the new facility. The Corps’ LA District managed construction of the $6-million facility, which replaces a more than 25-year-old library on the installation and 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.
