Library History

Bell Library was established in 1913 as the 29th branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library System. After having been relocated several times, the library was built at the present location in 1960.

Due to the rapid growth of the community, the building was expanded in 1973. It is presently serving one of the most culturally diverse communities in Los Angeles County.
