The Los Angeles Public Library welcomes the opportunity to attend community events and meet Angelenos. The following guidelines help us decide if we can attend:

  • Our primary goal is to serve the residents of the City of Los Angeles.
  • Our objective is to connect the community with library resources and services.
  • LAPL participates in events that align with our mission statement.
  • The Los Angeles Public Library provides free and easy access to information, ideas, books and technology that enrich, educate and empower every individual in our city's diverse communities.

    – Los Angeles Public Library Mission Statement
  • LAPL participates in events that are free and open to the general public.
  • In order to properly plan, please submit requests at least 3-4 weeks before the event date.
  • Attendance/participation is contingent on staff availability.
  • Staff and public safety is the priority. During the COVID-19 pandemic, only events that abide by city and state health measures will be considered.
