The Malibu Library, part of the County of Los Angeles Public Library, was designed in 1963 and opened its doors in 1970. Following a $6 million renovation in 2011-2012, the library reopened with a state-of-the-art design made to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications, in keeping with the City's mission to preserve and protect the environment. The new library floor plan showcases local history and Malibu's sand, sea and sun culture, providing guests with comfortable, inspirational areas for reading and research, as well as community space for meetings, presentations and special events.
In October 2013, the United States Green Building Council recognized the City of Malibu and County of Los Angeles with LEED Gold certification for the sustainable materials and processes used in the library renovation project.
