The evidence, spread out like a series of mug shots, was irrefutable. First, a photo of a white car, with "Double Parking" scrawled beneath it, blithely holding up traffic in front of a school. Then, a station wagon dropping off a child at a bright red curb, clearly guilty of "Illegal Stopping." Although the incriminating photos were made only to test the equipment, soon scofflaws will be receiving citations in the mail for traffic violations near schools in Calabasas.

The Calabasas Library will have its grand opening Saturday. In a 10 a.m. ceremony, city officials and library staff members will welcome the public to the first city-run library. In May the City Council decided to assume control of the facility after facing red tape with the county. "We were unable to extend the hours on Sundays and we couldn't staff the library with a full-time librarian," library Manager Field G. Weber said.

Welcome to Calabasas. Here, where iron gates shield the rich from the merely middle class, the streets are paved and the sidewalks weed-free. The schools are excellent and the city recreation center still has signs up from when it was a country club. Just across Mulholland Highway in the city of Los Angeles, though, in the affluent western section of Woodland Hills, fuzzy grasses poke through cracks in the pavement, and untrimmed trees wave back and forth on a dry California afternoon.

The city is going on a shopping spree. After deciding to break away from the county library system, the City Council rejected the county's asking price of $288,000 for its current 17,000-title collection in favor of buying a new one. City Manager Charles Cate estimates that a new collection will cost between $200,000 and $225,000. According to Karyn Foley, president of Friends of the Calabasas Library, the county's asking price was "unreasonable."

The location of the local library will not change this summer when the city takes over the operation from the county. Even though the county has been overseeing the facility, the city has been responsible for renting the storefront where the library has been located since January 1996. But the county owns the collection--17,000 books and recordings--which it offered to sell to the city.

To ensure that patrons don't lose services they enjoyed at the Calabasas library under the Los Angeles County system, the city of Calabasas has applied to join the Metropolitan Cooperative Library System, an organization that shares collections among its 30 members. If admitted to the group, the library would have access to books from the collections of member libraries that include branches in Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks and Burbank.
