Research will be in the History and Genealogy Department on Lower Level 4, between 11am & 6pm. Take the escalator or elevator down to Lower Level 4. We are at tables near the elevators and the copiers & computers; just ask the library personnel.
Please travel light. You will notice the library provides security personnel. Because this is a public library used by the public it is recommended that you not leave computers, purses or other personal items unattended while researching. To date, we have had no problems with the other patrons or with the loss of personal items, but better to be safe than sorry, as noted in this article from the NY Times.
Getting to the Library
LAPL is just a block from a Los Angeles Metro station. Check out your public transportation options at Metro's Trip Planner page.
If you're driving, park UNDER the library by entering their lot at 524 Flower St. Be sure to get your ticket validated before returning to your car & remember where you parked it! You do need a Los Angeles Public Library card to receive the special $1.00 weekend parking rate. You can apply for the card at your local LAPL or at the Circulation Desk when you arrive or leave the library. Just bring your identification. Once you obtain the card, you can go to the Information Desk to secure the parking validation.
Food: There is a coffee shop on the library's main floor.
Extras: Visit the library gift shop--if you dare. There are always book
and/or gift items on sale
Central Library NEW Hours: Mon. 10-6, Tue. 10-8, Wed. 10-8, Thu. 10-8, Fri. 10-6, Sat. 10-6, Sun. Closed
