Universal City is getting a new library facility!
The library will be CLOSING October 1st to pack so we can move to our temporary space.  The location for our temporary space is to be determined.

The last day to check out items is September 10th.
The final day to return all items is September 17th.

If you have any late items, please return them and take advantage of our food for fines program.  For every $1 in late fees, bring in one non-perishable food item.   This works for old fees and for items that are currently out and late, but the item must have been returned in good condition.

Interested in a new library facility?
The Friends of the Universal City Public Library have set up a fund specifically for a new building.  If you're interested in donating, please write a check to Friends of the Universal City Library and in the memo line, notate "Library Building Fund."

Also, the Friends are going to be compiling a book of creative writing by Universal City residents to be published.  The proceeds will go to the Library Building Fund.
