On average, Topanga residents carry around four or five library cards. Soon, they’ll need just one, thanks to the long-awaited construction of the Topanga Library. Scheduled for completion in the summer of 2010, the library is expected to be one of the most heavily used in the L.A. County library system. The $12-million project, funded through the Third District office of Supervisor Yaroslavsky, will include a 40,000 volume library, community meeting room, teen homework center and artwork by Topanga locals. The structure also will meet the latest in green-building standards. Ground was broken in 2008.
