Glass & Steel

   The new $63 million Broome library opened last Friday at California State University Channel islands, also known as Cal State Sushi.  The building, a modern glass & steel edifice desgined by British architect Sir Norman Foster, is a departure from the Santa Barbara Spanish style architecture left over from the former Camarillo State Mental Hospital, orginally populated in 1932 and shuttered in 1997.  It is impressive to see how far and fast the new university has come in just eleven years.  And very promising for the future – we need another professorial brain trust and cache of educated young adults in Ventura County.
