The San Clemente Library opened for the first time in about 18 months on Monday to an attendance of about 100 people—some waiting outside the door before opening, branch manager Karen Wall said. There also were about a dozen new submissions for library cards.

The majority of open space left on shelves is going to be stocked in the next few weeks, Wall said.

“Mostly where you’re seeing empty shelves is where we have room to grow,” Wall said. “The only areas that are not stocked fully are some of our magazine racks.”

WiFi is up and running and so are the new computers, and the new children’s section is open.

Most of the staff members have returned, but there is a new librarian and librarian assistant, Wall said. Also, the interview process is taking place for the new children’s librarian. Wall also said they are looking to expanding the children’s programming.
