East Rancho Dominguez Library

4205 East Compton Boulevard
Compton, CA 90221


The East Rancho Dominguez Library, formerly known as the East Compton Library, was originally located at 15121 S. Atlantic Avenue. The library was opened for service on March 17, 1952, for thirteen hours a week with a collection totaling 4,860 books. At that time it was the fastest growing library in the Los Angeles County Public Library's 43-year existence and for that reason the library was relocated to its present site on October 17, 1955. In June 1955, the circulation was 2,616. By October 1955, it was 3,396. The collection had increased to 5,366 with a growth capacity of 10,000. By 1963, more space was needed and on April 17, 1963, the size of the building was doubled. A Friends of the Library group was established in March 2000, with the installation of the first officers on March 18, 2000.
