The end of the work is drawing closer as the Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and the County of Los Angeles Public Library have announced a dedication and tour event for the remodeled La Mirada Library.

The event is scheduled for Monday, November 21 at 1:30 p.m.

The Library is currently undergoing a $4 million renovation project. The funds for the project were provided by Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe as part of the Supervisor’s “Operations Library” campaign. Through the campaign, five libraries in the Los Angeles County 4th district have been upgraded.

Renovations to the 45 year-old library include new flooring, ceilings, paint, lighting, furniture and equipment. The library will also feature a teen work room, study rooms, an extensive children’s area, a conference room, and a space for the Friends of the Library group.
