In 2005, the City and Los Angeles County Library conducted a Malibu Library Needs Assessment to determine the library service goals and enable the County Library to provide service more closely tailored to the community’s needs. A new Needs Assessment is being prepared in 2018 to update the community's goals for the Malibu Library in order to determine future enhancements that will meet those goals.
As part of the new Library Needs Assessment, the City invites the public to share their thoughts about future library services for the community through an online survey. Community members are asked to provide feedback on what the Los Angeles County Public Library, Malibu Branch needs - more books, movies, learning experiences, or a quiet corner to read and think. During the coming months, additional opportunities to participate in the Needs Assessment process will be announced.
