Progress in Arts & Libraries

  • In 2014 we opened the Bayshore library on Sundays as a pilot program. Today there are 4 libraries throughout the city that are open on Sunday!

  • In 2016 we approved the 1% for the Arts program, ensuring that 1% of building costs for all public projects go to support Artists and arts organizations in Long Beach. This money will ensure that our local artists, as well as art attractions like Musical Theatre West, the LB Symphony, The LB Opera, the LB Museum of Art, Musica Angelica, and the Long Beach Camerata Singers continue to provide music education in our schools.
