As a result of the serious and imminent threat of Coronavirus, the Redondo Beach Library Department is taking significant action to help safeguard the community and our employees. Effective at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, 2020, the Redondo Beach Public Library will close both the Main Library and the North Branch, and these closures will remain in effect until at least June 30.

This temporary loss of access to the in-person learning opportunities that the Library provides to the community is a necessary action at this time. Our digital services will remain available to our patrons 24/7 and can be found under "Electronic Resources" and Downloads and Streaming." Library staff has also compiled a list of free internet resources for you to enjoy.

We are extending due dates during this time, so you do not need to return materials until the Library has reopened.

We will continue to provide our patrons with updates on Library service and look forward to providing service to you when we reopen. Please check our webpage for future updates.

Please visit the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health website for the single authoritative source on Coronavirus within LA County and check the City's webpage for updates.

Upon proclamation or declaration of an emergency within or including the City by the Director of Emergency Services or the City Council pursuant to Section 3-2.06 of this chapter, or by state or federal officials and for a period of thirty (30) days after the date the emergency is declared terminated, it is unlawful for any person within the City to sell or offer for sale any goods or services, including, but not limited to, emergency supplies, water, food, clothing, building materials, medical supplies and fuel for an amount which exceeds ten (10%) percent of the price regularly and customarily charged by such person for the goods and/or services on the day immediately before the date of the proclamation or declaration of an emergency. The foregoing ten (10%) percent price increase limitation shall not apply to the extent that the person can prove that, (a) the increase in price of greater than ten (10%) percent was unavoidable and directly attributable to additional costs imposed upon the person by the supplier of goods or services and, (b) that without a greater than ten (10%) percent increase in price, the person would not be able to earn a fair rate of return on investment.
