Chicano Resource Center East Los Angeles Library

Chicano Resource Center at the East Los Angeles Library. 

The Los Angeles County Library system will reopen 30 of its 85 locations -- including the East Los Angeles branch -- for "select in-person service" this month following the county's move into the orange tier of the state's economic reopening blueprint.

The selected LA County Library branches will reopen April 19, with capacity restricted to 50%. However, libraries in the City of Los Angeles, which are operated under a different system, will remain closed.

Additional locations are expected to in a phased process, and outdoor programming with limited numbers of participants will begin in September at select libraries.

Sidewalk service and book drops will remain available at all reopening libraries.

The libraries were closed a year ago as COVID-19 began to spread across Los Angeles.
