Malibu Library is set to reopen under limited capacity starting April 19.

With Los Angeles County entering the orange tier of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, libraries are cleared to reopen at half capacity, while mandating 6 feet between customers.

The L.A. County Library phased reopening plan was created, officials say, with an emphasis on equity “with special consideration for reopening libraries in underserved areas where residents prioritize in-person services.”

Twenty nine of the county’s 85 libraries will join Malibu in the first wave of the reopening.

In preparation for the public’s return, the library system is working to ensure safety protocols and appropriate preventative measures are in place.

Sidewalk service and book drops will be available at participating libraries, and digital offerings are always available at, including a temporary digital library card to access eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies and online classes.
