It’s been 13 years since Malibu publicly examined the role of its library … a branch of the county library system that is funded largely by the city.

That study resulted in a 6 million dollar renovation … finished five years ago.

And now … the city is again examining the role of its library in the civic fabric of life here.

The lack of a branch library in the population center of Malibu … eight miles away at Point Dume … is frequently mentioned as one shortcoming.

Under tax formulas … Malibu contributes 3 point 6 million dollars in property taxes for library services … and the library cost 1 point 6 million dollars to run.

There is a surplus that has been building up over the years.

And there is talk about building a joint library … with the Malibu High School reconstruction effort.

Or maybe a branch library at the city’s newly-acquired land at Point Dume.

That question is up for discussion at another Malibu town hall meeting … tomorrow night at 7 … at City Hall.


Looks like Nobu is going to get some competition in the high-end big ticket eating market at Latigo Beach.
