L.A. County began reopening some of its libraries in April, and will welcome visitors back to 21 more branches beginning in early June.

Three bookmobiles will also reopen for select in-person services.

The additional facilities will bring the number of reopened county libraries up to 81.

Starting June 7, these libraries will return to in-person services: Bell Gardens, the George Nye Jr. Library in Lakewood, Hawaiian Gardens, Lake Los Angeles, Maywood Cesar Chavez and Westlake Village.
