Major $8 Million Renovation to Begin for Lynwood Library

Lynwood is first of several Southeast LA libraries that Hahn’s office will help renovate

Lynwood, CA – Today, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced the launch of major refurbishment work on the Lynwood Library, a branch of the Los Angeles County Public Library. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors approved the $8,000,000 project which will be carried out by LA County Public Works. The Lynwood Library, a 12,000-square-foot building at 11320 Bullis Road was built in 1977 and has received no significant upgrades or improvements since it opened. Work is expected to begin April 1.

“It’s time to show some love to our Lynwood Library. Our County libraries are for more than just books—they help parents navigate early learning, students work toward high school diplomas, future Americans study for citizenship tests, and so much more. Residents deserve the most up-to-date facilities, and I’m proud to bring that to our Lynwood residents very soon,” said Hahn.

The refurbished library will include a customer service desk, an adult reading area, a teen area, a children’s area, an enlarged community room, two group study rooms, express-service self-checkout machines, public access computers, and Wi-Fi internet access. The project also includes aesthetic upgrades on the site, including two large skylights for increased natural light indoors and drought-tolerant landscaping outside.

“We are committed to creating welcoming and robust 21st century libraries for our communities,” said LA County Library Director Skye Patrick. “Thanks to this generous funding from Supervisor Hahn, we’ll be able to make substantial updates and improvements to Lynwood Library and provide new resources to local residents.”

The building has not received major renovation work since opening in 1977.

The library site is located near the city’s civic center and Lynwood Park. An “express” temporary library location nearby will open next month where residents will have access to immediate library services. The renovation work is expected to conclude in November of next year. The other four libraries to be refurbished are Huntington Park, Bell, Leland Weaver (South Gate), and Maywood.

“Our Lynwood community depends on our library for so many resources and this refurbishment is long overdue. I’m so thankful to Supervisor Hahn for putting Lynwood at the top of her list,” said Lynwood Mayor and LA County Library Commissioner José Luis Solache.
