Welcome to the Culver City Friends of the Library website! The Friends are a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the Culver City Julian Dixon Library. Your support enables the Culver City Julian Dixon Library to enrich its resources, enhance its services, and expand its programs to maximize the Library's role and usefulness in the community.

We will need to wait a little longer for the renovation of the Culver City Julian Dixon Library, as the County just announced that work (and the accompanying library closure) will NOT begin on Tuesday, April 22 as previously reported. The project will still proceed, hopefully commencing within the next couple of months, but as a result of concerns about the length of the closure, the County now plans to complete as much preliminary work as possible before moving to temporary facilities at the Mayme Clayton Library and Museum.
The scope of the project continues to expand, and will now include extensive modernization and energy-efficiency upgrades. Using proceeds from a L.A. County Second District Grant received by the County Library system, new interior and exterior lighting will be installed, the existing roof will be replaced and outfitted with solar panels, and the building's heating and air conditioning systems will be replaced or retrofitted, all of which will dramatically improve the building's energy efficiency. The Culver City Julian Dixon Library will be the first in Los Angeles County to undergo this sort of coordinated energy efficiency work and will serve as a model for future work of its kind in the County.
The Friends of the Library are still happy to accept book donations at the main library, which will remain open its regular hours. When the library does close and moves to the temporary library location, we will also be able to accept book donations at that site.
We will let everyone know as soon as the County announces more definite information. We appreciate everyone's understanding and support, and look forward to having a truly wonderful library.
It is people like these that make our library possible.
