Library History

Malibu Library, located in the Malibu Civic Center Complex, was established in 1970 by the County of Los Angeles Public Library. Prior to 1970, a bookmobile provided library service to the Malibu community serving residents in Topanga Canyon and along the Pacific Coast Highway.

On April 22, 2012, a grand opening celebration was held to mark the completion of a $6 million renovation of the Malibu Library, designed by the architectural firm of LPA, Inc. and funded by revenue generated from local property taxes.

The new sustainable, LEED-certified library has been redesigned to represent Malibu’s sand, sea and sun culture with features such as:

  • A replica of the Adamson House tile rug in the main lobby
  • A photographic exhibit featuring historical images of the area
  • The Children’s area featuring a marine life motif, including an 8′ by 14′ porcelain tile art piece designed by artist Christine Nguyen
  • A Teen area that embraces Malibu’s surf culture.
