[MISSION]
Through its fundraising efforts, the Redondo Beach Library Foundation (RBLF) enables the Redondo Beach Public Library to supplement governmental support and develop programs and collections which truly fulfill the dream of a safe, well-equipped environment which meets the needs and interests of the community.

What Our Efforts Support
The Redondo Beach Public Library provides services to the City's 63,000 plus citizens at its Main Library which is located at 303. N. Pacific Coast Highway and the North Branch at 2000 Artesia Boulevard. Although the City operated a sailors' reading room called the Redondo Beach Free Library starting in 1895, the City did not officially establish the Redondo Beach Public Library until 1908. A branch was opened in North Redondo Beach in 1930.

The Library is supported mainly through the City's General Fund. State support, which was approximately 10% a couple of years ago, has decreased to 5%. Like all California libraries, the Redondo Beach Public Library faces limited funding for material purchases, programs and services, staffing, technology updates, and maintenance of effort.
