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.
It is with deep sadness that we are sharing the news that Laura Frakes, the Community Library Manager at the Culver City Julian Dixon Library, has passed away. Laura started work with the County Library system in 1988 in Norwalk, became CLM of the West Hollywood Library in 1998 and came to Culver City as CLM in 2006.
Her passion and enthusiasm for our library will be missed, as will her creativity, insight, and compassion. She was instrumental in the planning for the upcoming celebration of the library's 50th anniversary, and we are so sorry that she will not be there to share in the joy of those events. We will be honoring her dedication to the library and her memory at our annual Installation Dinner on Friday, January 17, 2020 and at the library's 50th anniversary celebration on April 1, 2020. We hope you can join us for some or all of these opportunities that were so dear to her heart. She was an important part of our library "family" and we are so grateful to have known her.
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.
