    About Us

    The Los Angeles Public Library provides free and easy access to information, ideas, books and technology that enrich, educate and empower every individual in our city's diverse communities.

    Book Purchases: We provide funds for the purchase of books and to supplement the Branch's annual book budget.

    Audio-Visual Collections: Friends purchase audio/visual materials. Over the years our collection of books on tape, CDs, DVDs and videos has grown considerably, to one of the best in the system.

    Speaker programs: We present authors and speakers of interest to the community on a regular basis.

    Musical programs: We host occasional music programs such as a program on the patio outside the library’s community room.

    Creative writing for youth: Each year the Friends host creative writing contests for youth from first through twelfth grade. Entries are judged by Friends members and prizes are awarded at a ceremony at the library. Click on Library Programs for more details.

    Library maintenance: We provide weekly gardening services.

    Equipment purchases: We have purchased audio/visual equipment, blinds, patio furniture, and shelves for books.

    Book store: The Bookstore is located on the small patio adjacent to the magazine section in the rear right of the library. In addition to selling gently used hardbacks and paperbacks in fiction, nonfiction and children's categories, the store features a modest inventory of DVD's, music and books on CD and 'Special' books.
