Corps joins Fort Irwin leaders to cut the ribbon on new library
More than 400 Fort Irwin community members – including Soldiers and their family members, checked out the new Fort Irwin Library March 9 following a ribbon-cutting ceremony signifying its grand opening. The Corps’ LA District managed construction of the $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.
