In the Fall of 1999, the Fullerton College Library was shut down for the removal of asbestos and some minor renovations. The library operated in temporary quarters—an 8,000-square-foot tent—set up in the Quad. After the refurbishment, the library was rededicated on Tuesday, April 25, 2000. Following seven months of construction and remodeling, the renovated facility featured new classrooms, nearly 100 more computer workstations, new lighting, new carpeting, and new ceilings. Funds for the renovation project were provided by state and federal monies, in addition to contributions from the Friends of the Fullerton College Library, a non-profit fundraising arm of the library. This is the program for the rededication.
