New Donation Bin

We are pleased to announce that the bin is in! Our new donation bin is installed and ready for your donations of quality books, CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays. The donation bin is located at the rear of the library, just off the parking lot. We ask that all items donated be in nice, clean, gently used condition. One condition guideline to follow is “don’t donate it if you wouldn’t buy it.” Another is “would you display this on the shelves in your living room.”

All donated items must be put inside the bin - do not leave any items outside of the bin. Due to size and storage limitations, if your donation is larger than 4 bankers boxes, please contact us first at info@ccfol.org in order to make arrangements.

We can not accept the following: encyclopedia sets, outdated textbooks, VHS tapes, outdated technology books, or any items damaged by heat, mold, or water. We can accept select magazines in excellent condition only.

The Friends Board would like to thank everyone for their generous donations of quality media items. Many of these books have been added directly to the library collection. Our Book Room sales have made it possible for us to support the staff and various programs presented by the County. Thank you for your continued 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.
