60 Chatsworth Branch Library

60 Chatsworth

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.

We got:

The Too Scary Story by Bethanie Deeney Murguia;

Happy Library Week!  Check out some pictures from two years ago at the library. . . we’ve been visiting LAPL branches since the Spring of 2017 and there’s still no stopping us until we get to Branch 72.

Don’t forget – Citizen Science Day is coming up this Saturday April 13, 2019 – Play the Stall Catchers game to help advance Alzheimer’s research from 10:30am – 12:30pm.

If you want to be at a festival. . . you can always visit the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend April 13-14, 2019 at USC and visit the LAPL booth while you’re there.

As always, thank you Los Angeles Public Library!
