Irvine Valley College's new high-tech library--equipped with the latest online databases, a multimedia studio, and capacity for 80,000 books--will be dedicated Monday.
The event will be from 3 to 7 p.m. at the library, located on the IVC campus at Jeffrey Road and Irvine Center Drive.
David Mertes, former chancellor of the California Community Colleges, and Irene Kinoshita, president of Ascolta Training Co., are scheduled to speak. The event will also feature a Chinese dance group and music.
The 38,000-square-foot library has been open to students since the start of the fall semester. The facility has 60 computers, including 35 with CD-ROM.
