LA Public Library’s Van Nuys branch reopens after $ 1.9 million renovation – Daily Breeze

The Los Angeles Public Library’s Van Nuys department reopened Thursday, Oct. 7, after closing for a $ 1.9 million renovation that modernized the interior and upgraded the library’s technology.

“Today’s grand reopening of the Van Nuys Library is another step toward returning to the normality of our community,” said LA Bureau President Nury Martinez, who represents the area.

“This $ 1.9 million improvement gives our students access to a brand new, state-of-the-art library that not only bridges the digital divide, but opens the door to endless possibilities for our society.”

The library, located at 6250 Sylmar Ave., is open from 6 p.m. 10 to 20 on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 12 to 20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 9:30 to 17:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. The branch is closed on Sundays.

The library first opened in its current location in May 1964, but LAPL has served the Van Nuys area since 1911.

“We are excited to welcome the community back to their local branch and offer patrons a new and improved library experience,” said John F. Szabo, City Librarian. “The redesigned space and expanded resources will further strengthen the community connection.”
