The 35th Branch Library 35/72 is in Sunland-Tujunga. It is in the San Fernando Valley‘s Northeast area near the Angeles National Forest. It is next to Howard Finn Park (with such a cool dragon to climb on!)
Riley, Gramma G and I enjoyed the children’s section. It was a bit secluded and it felt like a private reading nook (since we were the only family there at the time!). . .
The children’s section has lots of stuffed animals for the kids (and adults) to play with, board books and spots to sit and relax.
We found many great books to bring home.
We got I Sleep in a Big Bed by Maria Van Lieshout, though Riley still sleeps in a crib. . .
We took home Babies Can Sleep Anywhere by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Carolina Búzio.
The King of Too Many Things by Laurel Snyder, pictures by Aurore Damant.
Only You by Rosemary Wells.
The Planets by Gail Gibbons.
All the Water In the World by George Ella Lyon and Katherine Tillotson.
Crocopotamus: Mix and match the wild animals! by Mary Murphy. I loved this board book! So did Riley.
Goldilocks and the Just Right Potty by Leigh Hodgkinson. We seem to be reading more of these potty related books since Riley seems to be going in the potty training direction. . .
Return by Aaron Becker. This is one of the three in his beautiful wordless book trilogy.
Lastly was Caillou at Grandma and Grandpa’s by Joceline Sanschagrin and illustrated by Pierre Brignaud. Riley had Gramma G read this to her when we got home (this is a show they watch together).
We always have such a nice time visiting the library, and find so many great books. The best thing is that there are so many more to visit and enjoy.
Next time you’re in the Sunland-Tujunga area, visit Branch 35 and check out some of the upcoming events! These include Movies, Quilting Clubs, Storytime and Crafts, Acting Techniques and Computer Comfort classes and events!
Thanks for everything, LAPL. Also, here’s a cool map of LAPL branches from Los Angeles Magazine which may remind you of our favorite map tote bag from the Library Store!
