On Sunday, March 26, you'll be able to ride your bike from downtown Culver City to the ocean with only 9 stops. CicLAvia is coming to Culver City.

Gone are the days of dusty shelves, rarely opened books and lots of shushing. Today’s school library is focused on collaboration, technology and a new way of encouraging students to explore ideas that stretches way beyond anything the traditional library could accommodate.
Earlier this month, Culver City High School unveiled its new Digital Library Media Center. Filled with the latest technology and informal collaborative spaces, the center sets the vision for the future of all Culver City classrooms and learning spaces: modular furniture, state-of-the-art audio/visual tools, a collaborative design and writable spaces.
