The community is invited to vote for two men's names that will remain on the Cerritos Library Study Rooms. This voting survey will be available through 5 p.m. on Thursday, December 28, 2023. Survey participants can vote for up to two of the following names: Isaac Asimov, Aldous Huxley, Nikola Tesla, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. The adjacent Access Plus Room will retain the name George Orwell as it is not a Study Room.
Three of the Study Rooms will be renamed after Marie Curie, Katherine Johnson and Chien-Shiung Wu. The names were chosen through an online voting survey. The Cerritos City Council approved the renaming project in response to a suggestion from members of the local community, as all of the rooms are currently named for men.
