We visited the 60th library branch of LAPL! The Chatsworth Branch Library is in the Chatsworth neighborhood of L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
We read lots of books during our visit and Riley drew on the drawing wall. We even got to talk to the Children’s Librarian, Chris! Thanks for coming up and saying hi to us, Chris!
Riley wanted a scary story read to her over and over again before we left. She is into scary stories lately. . . “Let’s do a ghost story!” We took home lots of good books once we finally did leave.
