In the East Hollywood area, near the Wilshire Center in Koreatown, USC and Downtown Los Angeles, is the 70th library branch of LAPL – Pico Union Branch Library. It’s close to MacArthur Park and the Staples Center.
We loved the children’s section with the beautiful fireplace!
We read a few books and danced. Riley had worn her Elsa dress that day and was feeling especially fancy and silly.
Riley even took a picture of me, which is crazy to think about since she couldn’t even walk when we started this journey at the 1st branch. . . .
We checked out a lot of books. Of course!
