More First Ladies, Select Sorority Act Two at the Grand Annex

Due to the overwhelming response for our Four First Ladies reading last year, we've invited the American Association of University Women Palos Verdes Readers Theater to entertain us with their reading, Select Sorority Act Two. The event will be held on Saturday, January 21st starting at 1:00 p.m. at the Grand Annex in downtown San Pedro. The event is free and refreshments will be served at the end of the event. Download the event flyer for further information.

New Hours at the Library

There has been a change in library operating hours for all libraries recently. Central Library and regional branch libraries will be open during the same hours and the branch libraries will have their own set of hours. The Central Library and branch libraries have been open on Sundays starting January 12, 2014. Thanks voters! The restoration of hours was made possible by voter-approved Measure L which was passed in March of 2011.
