Solano College ceremony paves way for new library – Daily Republic

By Bill Hicks

Like many of the well-worn books housed inside it, the Solano Community College library has some visible signs of aging.

Opened in 1971, the venerable Building 100 at the schoolā€™s main campus in rural Fairfield will soon be replaced by a nearly 60,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art library building that is expected to be ready in time for the fall 2021 school term.

School officials participated Wednesday in a ceremony to break ground at the campus to announce the replacement of the current library with a new library and learning center, which comes with a construction cost of nearly $39 million, funded jointly through Proposition 51 ā€“ a $9 billion statewide bond, passed in November 2016, to fund K-12 and community college projects ā€“ and Measure Q ā€“ the $348 million bond passed by local voters by November 2012.
