City Friends of the Library
Welcome to the Culver City Friends of the Library website! The Friends are a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the Culver City Julian Dixon Library. Your support enables the Culver City Julian Dixon Library to enrich its resources, enhance its services, and expand its programs to maximize the Library's role and usefulness in the community.
The Culver City Julian Dixon Library Annual Summary for 2022 is available to view or download by clicking this line.
The Friends Board would like to thank everyone for their generous donations of nice clean books, magazines, DVDs and CDs. Many of these books have been added directly to the library collection. Book Room sales have made it possible for us to support the staff and the various programs presented by the County. Recently we have had some problems with the donation bins. The biggest problem occurred when it was hit by a truck which destroyed one bin and damaged the one remaining. As such, we will be removing the remaining bin and replacing it with a new larger bin. Unfortunately this means that in the interim we cannot accept large donations without an appointment. However, if your donation is 3 bags or 3 boxes or less, you may bring those into the library at the front desk during open hours. Please do not leave any donations on the back loading dock or on the sidewalk at the rear of the library. We will let you know when the new bin is purchased and installed.
Thank you again for understanding and continual support.

On Gold Mountain Discussion Questions
To celebrate 100 years of Incorporation for Culver City
This project commemorates the Centennial through various forms of fiber art by portraying some of the iconic aspects of Culver City, past and present. More than thirty members of the community, ages 8 to 80, collaborated in the creation of this wall hanging, which commenced in May and was sponsored by CCFOL. It was inspired by the California Yarnscapes project of Yarn Bombing LA that was displayed at the Autry Museum last spring, and attempts to depict some of the history and locales that are dear to the hearts of Culver City residents. The main panel was displayed at City Hall on September 20, as part of the Culver City Birthday Party. The two flanking panels depict some of the past history of Culver City, even prior to the incorporation of the city, and some of the arts, activities, films and TV shows that have been part of the city. A legend, explaining the various components will be available at the library as well. The main panel is 5'x7', and the two additional panels are approximately 5' square.
