Mission Statement

This is what the board will work on.

Description

The library is located at 13109 Old Myford R oa d , the site of the original Irvine family ranch home, which was gutted by fire in 1965. Through the use of old photographs and architectural drawings, the house is being restored with help from the Irvine Foundation (through the Orange County Community Foundation); the City of Irvine; the Orange County Public Library; the county's Harbors, Beaches and Parks Department; and the Orange County Historical Commission.

The library is named after Katie Wheeler, granddaughter of James Irvine. The home will complement the 16-acre historic park, which contains a unique assemblage of buildings reflecting the history of the Irvine Ranch , one of the largest and most influential agricultural operations in Southern California. The park site currently includes the ranch 's headquarters, a large barn and numerous residential buildings. The library is looking for volunteers to create a Friends' group to support children's and adult programming, special collections and acquisitions. We need to create a 501 c3
