Little Libraries

Take a book and leave a book with one of our Little Libraries located at Gloria Molina Grand Park.

Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, Gloria Molina Grand Park is a 12-acre civic park, stretching from The Music Center to City Hall, that offers robust free public programming and green spaces to connect, create, and celebrate.

It’s now home to four signature Little Libraries for Angelenos to borrow from and help stock!

Look out for our iconic purple and hot pink Little Libraries located near the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, Court of Flags, and Billy Johnson Playground. Each Little Library is stocked with a small selection of books for children, teens, and adults. We encourage you to stop by Gloria Molina Grand Park and visit one of our Little Libraries and take a book and leave a book for someone else to enjoy.
