All 73 libraries in the City of Los Angeles were open today for the first time on a Monday since August of last year. At that point budget cuts put services at their lowest level in 140 years. Today's re-opening was the result of Measure L, which passed in March with more than 60 percent of the vote. Martín Gómez is the Los Angeles City Librarian.
