Villaseñor Branch Library Re-Opens After One Year Closure

The City of
San Bernardino’s Paul Villaseñor Branch Library reopened on January 22 after being closed for one year for repairs and improvements.

The library, located at 525 North Mt. Vernon Avenue, now features a remodeled community room with a capacity of 75 and upgraded restrooms. Additional building repairs discovered during the remodel were also completed.

While some services, including public computers and Wi-Fi remain down as part of the San Bernardino Library’s’ systemwide upgrade, Library Director Ed Erjavek is pleased to see Villaseñor open.

“Villaseñor Library is an important part of San Bernardino’s Westside,” said Erjavek. “The programs are very popular, especially with the kids, and its absence was noticed. The staff is especially happy to be back.”

The Library, named after World War II war hero Paul Villaseñor, features approximately 22,000 book titles, of which over 3,500 are in Spanish.

Library hours are Mondays and Tuesdays from Noon until 8:00 pm, and from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The Library is closed on Fridays and Sundays.
