28 Cypress Park Branch Library

28 Cypress Park


Cypress Park has a lovely library, the 28th Branch (28/72) of LAPL. Before going into this Northeast L.A. branch, Riley stopped for a banana snack with Gramma G. After our snack, we went in and headed straight to the play area in the children’s section.

It’s a great space, and Riley and G felt right at home.

We picked out some books that were out on display (thank you librarians!).

And spent some time being silly, of course.

Riley really appreciates having crayons available to borrow for the coloring pages. . .so thank you Cypress Park Branch for having both crayons and coloring pages available!

We took home quite a few books that had been out on the display shelf. We got the following picture books (click on the links to read what they’re about):

Good Day, Good Night by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Loren Long.

Can You Find My Robot Arm? by Chichiro Takeuchi.

Count with Maisy Cheep, Cheep, Cheep! by Lucy Cousins.

Tap Tap Boom Boom by Elizabeth Bluemle and illustrated by G. Brian Karas.

Lily’s Cat Mask by Julie Fortenberry.

Where’s Rodney? by Carmen Bogen and illustrated by Floyd Cooper.

Dear Girl by Amy Krause Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal, illustrated by Holly Hatam.

The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi.

Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes: Share and sing in two languages by Faye-Lynn Wu and illustrated by Kieren Dutcher (which includes a CD).

We had fun reading all of the books we took home. There are so many things happening at your local library and there are so many good books to read.

It’s the best when other kids are enjoying the library too – and when the YA Librarian gets us stuffed animals down from the very top shelves. . .!

Remember, Black History Month and the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang South Korea are also happening right now. . .! Happy Lunar New Year!  Also, did you know that Louise Redding McClain, a retired Los Angeles Public Library librarian, is the sister of the great singer/songwriter Otis Redding?
