About The Library Store

The Library Store is a non-profit gift shop operated by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles that is located inside the historic Los Angeles Central Library. All sales from our carefully curated collection of books, tees, totes, LAPL keepsakes, and much more support the Los Angeles Public Library. We source our inventory from a variety of vendors and small businesses, including many local artists as well as cause-related organizations, making us a top destination in Downtown L.A. for gifts and unique finds.
