We visited the 47th branch of the 72 LAPL branches, the Encino-Tarzana Branch Library in the Encino and Tarzana neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley.

Riley, G (Grandma Gail) and I looked through the shelves for books. . . and lounged in the sunshine on the floor.

There is a great Teens area at this library with a great Student Zone.

We picked out lots of books in the Children’s Section, of course.

We got:

The board book, flip flap fun, Mouse is Small by Mary Murphy;

Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Charles Vess;

The Mermaid and the Shoe written and illustrated by K.G. Campbell;

Flora and the Peacocks by Molly Idle.

We talked to the librarians checking us out, who told us that Tarzana was named after Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote the book Tarzan.

Next time you’re in Encino or Tarzana, stop by the local library. Drop off a ballot during election season like my mom Gail – Riley’s G did, read with a STAR reader or just browse the books and other resources like The Friends of the Library Bookstore.
