We visited the 62nd branch of the 72 LAPL branches! Lake View Terrace Branch Library is located in the North East Valley area next to the Discovery Cube Los Angeles, Hansen Dam Aquatic Center and a great public kid’s playground.

We were in time for Storytime and stayed for a bit (it was great!), but Riley really wanted to go to the children’s section.

It’s a beautiful library, and the children’s librarian is really sweet.

Riley played for a while and then she listened to G read a story, and then I read to her a bit. . .

We ended up going home with:

We enjoyed all of our library loot, as always. And will return said loot to the next LAPL branch we visit (thanks for making it so easy to return materials to any branch, LAPL!). . .

Next time you are in Lake View Terrace, visit the local library!  AND next time you are at any LAPL branch or Central Library, get a new library card (by paying a replacement card fee of only $3!) — Gajin Fujita’s Art Card a limited edition! I did! Of course I still keep Riley’s regular purple and orange card (and my old art card by Shepard Fairey too. . . just because). . .

Thank you, public libraries! And everyone who supports and frequents them.

I hope you’ll join us for the next ten branches we have left to visit!
