Filming, Taping, and Commercial Photography on Library Property

The Los Angeles Public Library allows its sites to be used for motion picture and television productions as long as the filming of taping does not interfere with the ability of the public to use the library. All use must conform to the other conditions of facility use and the necessary permits from the Los Angeles Film Office must be obtained. In 2006, the Mayor and City Council approved an ordinance prohibiting the charge of filming fees for motion picture, television and still photography productions. However, fees for the use of library personnel during filming or photography will continue to be charged. Personnel rates are listed above. Additionally, depending on the scope of the project, a security deposit ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 may be charged.
