10 Day Gap For City Library Services

book_drawingAs of Saturday and continuing through June 30 there will be no library services in the City of Santa Clarita. On July 1, the new city operated libraries will have a grand opening celebration at the Canyon Country and Newhall locations. The Valencia library will open on July 5.

At last Tuesday’s City Council meeting a Santa Clarita resident gave an impassioned speech decrying the lack of services. She suggested the city park book mobiles outside the libraries for families, like hers, who had children that need books for the summer. The woman explained that she wasn’t complaining, but trying to come up with alternatives “off the top of my head.”

The City Council said they would look into the issue, but today City Communications Manager Gail Ortiz said there were no book mobiles available from the county to cover the 10 day gap in services.

There is some good news for book worms, however, as there are several local book lending options:

Los Angeles County libraries are operating with normal business hours in Castaic and Acton-Agua Dulce.

The Castaic Library location and hours can be found by clicking here.

The Acton-Agua Dulce location and hours can be found by clicking here.

There is also the Stevenson Ranch Express library, essentially a book mobile, featuring books, periodicals and DVDs. Their location and hours can be found by clicking here.

LA County Library spokesperson Pamela Broussard said the Stevenson Ranch Express Library is an interim facility until a permanent building can be built to serve the west side of the Santa Clarita Valley. A Special Vision Meeting was held at the Stevenson Ranch Elementary School on June 7th.

Broussard defined the plans as being in the “beginning stages.”

More information on the proposed Stevenson Ranch library can be found here.
