Patrons celebrated the Almonte Library's opening as a full-service library during a reception this week.

The site at 2914 SW 59, in the Almonte Shopping Center, had served as a temporary library when the Southern Oaks Library was closed for renovation. It proved so popular that Metropolitan Library System officials decided to make it a permanent location after Southern Oaks reopened.

During the Almonte site's 10-month run subbing for Southern Oaks, more than 5,600 library cards were issued, officials said.
