In the Valley in Pacoima, near the Mission San Fernando Rey de España, is the 53rd branch of LAPL, Pacoima Branch Library.
G and Riley enjoyed looking at some books in the children’s area and then Riley came over to me for a turn. Now that Riley is 34 months old, she’s telling us what to do.
We took lots of great books home.

53 branches into this journey of visiting every branch of LAPL (72 branches!) I am still amazed by every book we check out. Your public library card is seriously the never-ending gift card of wonder and joy.
