We got to visit our 38th branch of LAPL!
In the neighborhood of Mar Vista, is the Mar Vista Branch Library, number 38/72 on our LAPL branch journey. It is across the street from L.A. Fire Department Station 62, just west of the 405 freeway and near Tito’s Tacos.
The staff was super nice and the librarians were friendly and helpful and we just had a lovely time.
We played, read books and colored a giant map of Los Angeles.
We spoke with a few librarians (one whom we’d met last year at a Summer Author Series) and even remembered to collect our Summer Reading Challenge tote bag!
We took home so many good books. (Our random picks continue to inspire wonder.)
We got a Caldecott Honor Book – Big Cat, little cat by Elisha Cooper.
We got When Frank Was Four by Alison Lester.
Let’s Count Goats!, words by Mem Fox and goats by Jan Thomas.
Yo Soy Muslim by Mark Gonzales and illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini.
You Hold Me Up by Monique Gray Smith and Danielle Daniel.
Weeds Find A Way, words by Cindy Jenson-Elliot and pictures by Carolyn Fisher.
Bad Dog Flash by Ruth Paul.
The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. When Riley pulled this off the shelf, she said, “Home.” So we definitely took it home.
Franny B. Kranny There’s A Bird In Your Hair! by Harriet Lerner and Susan Goldhor, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
Next time you’re in Mar Vista, visit the library! You can take Free Citizenship and Financial Literacy Classes and even learn how to Quilt From the Heart or enjoy Toddler Storytime. When we were visiting there was a table of board games going on that looked really fun. . .
Remember, all libraries will be closed on July 4th! But they’re always open online. . . . You can also join the California Author Project.
Thanks as always, LAPL.
