Corps joins Fort Irwin leaders to cut the ribbon on new library
Brig. Gen Curt Taylor, commanding general of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, leaves the new Fort Irwin Library March 9 following a ribbon-cutting ceremony signifying the grand opening of the facility. 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.
