Library and Early Education Commission
As of July 1, 2013, the Early Care and Education Commission (ECE) and the Library Commission have been combined into the Library and Early Education Commission. 


The Library and Early Education Commission studies, reviews, evaluates and makes recommendations to the City Council regarding existing or proposed library facilities, programs, operations, services and financing. The commission advocates improved library service, and as a forum for public discussion of library needs, the commission facilitates communication between the public, the City Council and library staff.

The City Council is the final decision making body of the City, and the commission acts on all matters referred to it by the council. In its capacity as an advisory body, the commission works most closely with the library department. 

The Library and Early Education Commission meets most often on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at:
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library
150 E. San Fernando St.
2nd Floor,Conference Room (225/229).

Commissioners spend four to six hours each month preparing for and attending the regular meeting. In addition, commissioners spend four to five hours each month on activities such as acquiring supplemental resource information for commission meetings and attending meetings with City staff and community representatives.

Meeting materials for this commission can be viewed on the Library's website.
