Culver City Julian Dixon Library to Offer Sidewalk Service – June 8

The Culver City Julian Dixon Library will begin offering sidewalk service holds pickup at select library locations beginning Monday, June 8. All bookdrops will also reopen for item returns that day. This is the first step of a phased reopening, with additional locations and hours to be added at a later date. Sidewalk service begins at 24 libraries, including Culver City Julian Dixon Library, and on the LA County Library website on June 8. Holds may be picked up Monday – Friday, 10 am – 5 pm. Libraries remain closed to the public, but staff are answering phone lines during the hours of 9 am – 6 pm, Monday – Friday. 

New holds can be placed starting June 8 using the online catalog on the LA County Library website, or over the phone. Customers with existing holds that were paused when libraries closed will also be notified of availability. Once holds are fulfilled, customers will be notified. To pick up, customers will be asked to call the library when they arrive, and their holds will be brought out to an outdoor table. Customers will be able to retrieve the item(s) without any direct contact with staff.

Additionally, bookdrops at all of LA County Library’s 85 locations will reopen for item returns on June 8. All returned materials will be quarantined before being reissued, as recommended by health officials. All due dates on existing checkouts have been extended to July 15. Due dates on new item checkouts will follow standard borrowing schedules. Customers should check their accounts for item due dates and assure items are returned to bookdrops. The Library’s digital offerings —including activity ideas, Virtual Storytime, and our online summer reading program for all ages—continue to be available on the Coronavirus web page of the LA County Library website.
