  1. I am so excited to welcome the Mayme Clayton Library and Museum to Culver City. More than a “Library” and more than a “Museum”.

    Recent programs have included Jazz music events including honoring Ella Fitzgerald, a cross-cultural community dialogue (ongoing)and a current display of images from Watts Riots and LA Riots.

    Let’s support this vital addition to our community!
