58 Woodland Hills Branch Library

58 Woodland Hills

We visited the 58th branch of LAPL’s 72 branches! In the neighborhood of Woodland Hills, is the Woodland Hills Branch Library.



We browsed the books and toys. . .

We met a few lovely moms and kids. . . one of the moms we talked with even got her High School Diploma through the LAPL! She would like to start some kind of school or library in Mongolia . . . I’m always awed by people we meet during our visits to libraries, and I hope she gets to follow her dreams.

And we got to enjoy Storytime because we happened to be there on a Wednesday at noon!


Riley picked out a bunch of books to take home.


We got:

Usborne Farmyard Tales – Animal Babies illustrated by Stephen Cartwright

Go Baby! Go Dog! by Anne Vittur Kennedy;

Vermont by Jennifer Hackett;

Magic Kitten – Classroom Chaos by Sue Bentley;


Biscuit and the Big Parade! by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and pictures by Pat Schories;

It’s always fun to explore the books that end up in our bag.

Next time you are in Woodland Hills, visit the local library. There are lots of fun things going on. If you’re there at noon on a Wednesday, stay for the Children’s Storytime! On Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 3:30pm take part in Rhythms of the World – part of the Día celebration.

Happy Spring, library style.
