We visited the 55th branch of LAPL! Playa Vista Branch Library. Playa Vista is a neighborhood on the Westside. The library is nestled between a bunch of apartment and condominium buildings, almost looking like part of the residential community – just below the Loyola Marymount University campus near LAX airport. We actually visited the beach at Marina del Rey, just after our library visit since we were out that way.
We read lots of books in the library. Riley was in the mood to read books (which means she turns pages and listens to me read them to her, while she makes comments). And spin around. “Twirl, mommy!”
She also called a few friends to tell them about her upcoming 3rd birthday (which she is really excited about). “Hello, Pie? Coming to my birthday? Okay, see you soon. Bye.”
And we also took lots of books home. We got:
At The Beach by Huy Voun Lee;
Will There Be a Lap For Me? Dorothy Corey and illustrations by Nancy Poydar;
Clifford’s Puppy Days by Norman Bridwell;
When I Grow Up by Julie Chen and illustrated by Diane Goode;

Next time you’re in Playa Vista, visit the local library! There are so many amazing activities and events! This includes Story Time in Chinese, Preschool Story Time, Knitting Classes and Ukulele Lessons! Just to name a few. . .
Thanks as always, LAPL. If you enjoyed the Academy Awards, check out the books behind the Oscar nominations. I’m on the waiting list for the e-book: Black Klansman by Ron Stallworth.
