The Redondo Beach Main Library, a $10-million copper and slate monument to learning, manners and civility, celebrated its second anniversary Tuesday. From the looks of it, you'd wonder whether the community meeting rooms upstairs had been the site of a rowdy two-year stampede. Inside the rooms, each open for public use, the cumulative damage report reads as follows: Eight of 10 original tables so scratched, defaced or beaten up--some sporting holes clear through--that they've had to be replaced.

Barbecue pits, grassy parks, picnic areas, playground equipment, water slides and a new pump system are scheduled to be added as part a $2 million face-lift planned for Seaside Lagoon this winter.

They came, they saw and they checked out books. More than 11,000 bookworms descended on Redondo Beach's new main library Saturday for a grand opening celebration that included everything from a magic show to free ice cream. "It was Grand Central Station on a crowded day," library Director Shari Petresky said. "It was absolutely packed." The slate and copper building, which contains 130,000 books and state-of-the-art computer services, has remained busy throughout the week.

For decades, Redondo Beach's Main Library was a quaint but seismically unsafe building with just three electrical outlets and a urinal that doubled as a book drop. The poorly lighted, seaside library at Veterans Park held 90,000 volumes in a building designed for 20,000. It had a leaky roof, inadequate parking and no emergency exits.
