Friends of Hermosa Beach Library provides the following services to support the library.
- Friends of the Library Book Sale
The Ocean View School on Monterey Blvd., where the St. Cross Church now stands, housed the first library. In 1913 it became a part of the Los Angeles County Public Library system, occupying a room in the Walker Building on the northwest Corner of Pier and Hermosa Avenues.
On August 10, 1962, after forty-five years of growing with the community, the doors of a handsome building at 550 Pier Avenue opened to the public for library service.
In March 2000, the library was refurbished with the support of Supervisor Don Knabe, Supervisor Fourth District, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
