The Los Angeles County Free Library was a little over a year old when the Lomita community applied for service. A branch was established in a local clubhouse in June 1914 with 232 books which were mostly donated, 14 registered card holders, and a volunteer custodian in charge of the library.
By 1918 its original quarters were outgrown, and a storefront room was rented in the Smith building at Lomita Boulevard and Narbonne Avenue. This was the library’s home for the next ten years.
In 1928 the library was moved to a 1,000 square foot building that remained in service for thirty two years.
In 1960 the library was moved to larger quarters which was formerly the Pioneer Press building.
On April 10, 1976, the Lomita Library was dedicated as part of the new city civic center and became permanently established in the community.
