ABOUT THE LIBRARY STORE
The Library Store is a non-profit gift shop located inside the historic Los Angeles Central Library. We are part of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, which supports the Los Angeles Public Library. We offer an eclectic collection of books, tees, totes, greeting cards, keepsakes and much more! Much of our LAPL merchandise is designed in-house, and our inventory is sourced from a variety of vendors and small businesses, including local artists as well as cause-related organizations, making us a favorite destination in Downtown L.A. for gifts and unique finds. We look forward to seeing you in-store!
