el dorado library anniversary event

Opened in 1970, the El Dorado Library was built to fit naturally into the park that surrounds it.

El Dorado Neighborhood Library will celebrate its 40th year of service to the Long Beach community on Saturday, October 16, 2010.

Named after the park in which it is located, El Dorado Library opened on September 23, 1970. The library was built to fit into its natural surroundings and is one of the larger neighborhood libraries in Long Beach.

With a community meeting room that has a capacity of 80, the building has become a popular place for local community events. In fact, two book clubs meet at El Dorado Library — the 50+ Book Club and the Mystery Discussion Group.

Join the El Dorado Library staff at 9:30 a.m. for a family storytime followed by refreshments at 10:00 a.m. “Make and Take” crafts for children will be available all day at the library. The Friends of the Long Beach Public Library will also sponsor a special one-day book sale, proceeds of which will support the El Dorado Neighborhood Library.

El Dorado Library is located at 2900 Studebaker Road, Long Beach. For more information please call 562-570-3136, or email nancy.paradise@lbpl.org
