A fun day at the new South Irving Library Grand Opening

Keep Irving Beautiful and North Lake College students from the Service Learning Program were in attendance at the Grand Opening of the new South Irving Library on Saturday, March 21.  Students dressed as KIB’s toucan mascot Kirby (Keep Irving Recycling and Beautiful Year-Round) and Buddy the Blue Recycling Bag as well as characters from children’s books like Curious George and Waldo entertained the children and adults in attendance and posed for many photos during the day.  Students also served as greeters and passed out programs to attendees who were interested in seeing the many amenities the new library has to offer.  In total, the six student volunteers gave 22 hours of time at this event.


“We love to help out at city events whenever we can, and what a wonderful event this library opening was,” said KIB Board member Rachel Moon.  “We are fortunate to have a group of North Lake students each spring and fall semester who enjoy giving back to the community in a variety of activities that we offer them. These students did a great job today, and the children just loved seeing the mascots and characters.”
