70 Pico Union Branch Library

Pico Union

In the East Hollywood area, near the Wilshire Center in Koreatown, USC and Downtown Los Angeles, is the 70th library branch of LAPLPico 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!

We got:

Whose Moon Is That? by Kim Krans;


Be Brave, Little Penguin by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees;


The Octonauts & The Great Ghost Reef by Meomi;


Bonesville by Jean-Luc Fromental; and Joëlle Jolivet;


Los Gatos Black on Halloween written by Maria Montes and illustrated by Yuyi Morales;


I Dream of Trains by Angela Johnson and illustrated by Loren Long;


Sweetest Kulu by Celina Kalluk, illustrated by Alexandria Neonakis;


Samurai Scarecrow – A very ninja Halloween by Rubin Pingk;


Peppa Pig and the I Love You Game by Astley Baker Davies Ltd;


Snail & Worm Again by Tina Kügler;


Niño Wrestles The World by Yuyi Morales;


Cat Dreams by Ursula K. Le Guin and illustrated by S.D. Schindler;


Fetch by Jorey Hurley.


Reading with Riley never stops being the most amazing time of my day.

Next time you’re near the Pico Union Branch Library, stop in!  If you’re a kid, you can eat a Summer Lunch!  If you’re an adult, there’s Walk-In Tutoring! Thanks, LAPL.
