LA County Library to Showcase Newly Refurbished Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey Library at Open House on July 21

To celebrate the reopening and refurbishment of Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey Library, LA County Library and Supervisor Janice Hahn will host an Open House on July 21 from 11 am to 1 pm.

The Open House will feature an outdoor activity for children and teens, a walkthrough of the library’s newly refurbished space, and special messages from Supervisor Janice Hahn, LA County Library Director Skye Patrick, and the local community.

Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey Library’s refurbishment was made possible by the generous support of Supervisor Hahn’s 4th Supervisorial District Capital Fund. The $1 million plus refurbishment project started on November 1, 2019 and was completed on November 1, 2020.  The Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey library reopened its doors on May 10 for select in-person services as part of the Library’s phased reopening, which followed the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

JTC Architects served as the project architect, MTM Construction served as the project’s contractor, and construction management services were provided by Los Angeles County Internal Services Department. LA County Library staff also played a significant role in the refurbishment and reopening of the Library.
