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.

In honor of Wayne Pulliam, the Culver City Friends of the Library will be holding a Bag Sale for the month of July.

From Monday, July 2 through Tuesday, July 31, bring your own bag in to the Friends of the Library Book Sale Room and fill it with all the books you want for only $10. That's right, a bag of books for only $10. The book sale room will be replenished daily so check in often. This is a great way to find the perfect summer read and an opportunity to stock up your bookshelves.

The important fine print: Bags must be no larger than the standard size super market shopping bag. You will need to bring your own bag. The Bag Sale applies only to books - other items such as DVDs, CDs, and magazines are regular price and not included in the Bag Sale.

While visiting the library, be sure to visit the memorial display in the lobby honoring the life of Wayne Pulliam. Wayne was a cherished friend to many of us and a vital member of the Friends and the community. As many of you know, Wayne could often be found in the Book Sale room and that all the while he was working to make the Book Sale room great he was also making the world a better place. Wayne's kindness, friendliness and cheerful smile will be missed.

Wayne Pulliam

The Culver City Friends of the Library regret to share the news of the passing of long-time Board Member and Book Room Chair, Wayne Pulliam. Wayne’s decades-long dedication to the Culver City Julian Dixon Library was well-known in the community. It was partly due to his long hours of volunteering that CCFOL was able to hold the successful book sales that were largely responsible for the recent renovation of the library. Wayne’s kindness, friendliness and cheerful smile will be missed.

Wayne passed away on May 30, 2018. A memorial service will be held at St James Episcopal church on June 14. The family has asked that donations be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association or the American Cancer Society.

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.
