Julian Dixon Library in Culver City Closes

All County Library Locations Affected by Coronavirus

 


As a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), all 86 library locations will be closed March 15 - March 31.

LA County Library will close all 86 locations as of March 15 through March 31, 2020. The decision to close libraries was made following guidance from State and local health officials to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and encourage social distancing.

"After careful consideration, and discussions with local health authorities, we have decided to close our libraries in an abundance of caution and to help prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19." said Library Director Skye Patrick. "We understand the impact this can potentially cause on customers and will continue to monitor the situation closely to provide updates."

The health and safety of staff and customers are of utmost importance and the Library will continue to work with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to provide updates on credible information and guidance during this time.

To provide for some continuity of service offerings, customers can contact their local LA County Library with questions about resources and services. Visit LACountyLibrary.org/library-locator to find a local library with contact information. We will continue to staff our telephone lines for Reference Services, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 6 pm. Teachers, parents, and caregivers can contact Library staff for resources and engagement tips for children while they are home from school.

The library locations listed below will keep the lobby open for customers to pick up holds beginning Tuesday, March 17 at 9 am.
