San Juan Ridge library opens new building

Members of the North San Juan community got a chance Thursday afternoon to see the San Juan Ridge Community Library’s recently constructed annex during a soft opening of the nearly 500-square-foot building adjacent to the existing library. The facility, equipped with fiber optic high speed internet, has already been used by students working remotely as well as community members who can use Wi-Fi from the parking lot. The library is currently open Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.
