This week is National Library Week! Although our library buildings are closed, you can still find your place at the library, because we’re always open online, with access to e-media, digital resources, virtual programming and more from home with your library card.

Los Angeles Public Library Traveling Branch in 1949
Tiffney Sanford, April 11, 2018

Today is National Bookmobile Day, a day to celebrate the contributions bookmobiles make to their communities. From 1949 to 2004, Los Angeles Public Library’s bookmobiles made a significant impact in the community by visiting lots of neighborhood schools, parks, and housing developments around the city.
