59 Northridge Branch Library

59 Northridge

Hey guys, guess what? We visited LAPL Branch 59 on our journey to visit all 72 branches! The Northridge Branch Library is in the neighborhood of Northridge in the San Fernando Valley. It is across the street from California State University Northridge, where I went to graduate school for Speech Language Pathology!

This was Riley’s first visit to a library as a 3 year old.  We enjoyed ourselves in the children’s section. . . as we always do. We even chatted with the Senior Librarian, Mandy, who recognized us as we walked in!

Riley made a train of chairs, and played with puzzles and a little boy who was also visiting with his mom. Though sharing is still a work in progress. . .

We took home a bag of books. It’s funny, I was looking at old posts from early branches, when we only checked out one or two books at a time. Now we take up to fifteen items sometimes. . .

We took home:

Rapunzel by Chloe Perkins and illustrated by Archana Sreenivasan;
