Grand Opening Celebration

Malibu Library Lighthouse

The City of Malibu and County of Los Angeles invited the entire Malibu community to join them at a Grand Opening celebration to mark the completion of the $6 million renovation of the Malibu Community Library on Sunday, April 22, 2012.

The celebration featured children's activities, interactive exhibits, art projects, local authors, and storytime.

The new sustainable, LEED-certified library has been redesigned to represent Malibu's sand, sea and sun culture with features such as:
