A new community center is open in Valley Center that includes a library and a senior center.

The library is still in the process of moving and reshelving its 45,000-plus books and other items. Only some of the collections were in place when a grand opening event was held on July 4.

Valley Center’s only independent grocery store, Leeker’s Family Foods, closed this weekend. The store was not only a place to buy food, but it also served as a community hub for the past 50 years.
