For the first time in four years, San Pedro’s branch of the L.A. Public Library will be open on Sundays. The library is one of nine throughout the City that will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays thanks to funding from 2011’s Measure L. A ceremony was held yesterday to celebrate the return of Sunday hours, which were cut in 2009 during the city’s budget crisis.
