History:
The Ocean View School on Monterey Blvd., where the St. Cross Church now stands, housed the first library. In 1907 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.

Services:
Services available are basic reference services; reader's advisory service; public access Internet computers, online library catalogs that provide access to both the entire County Library collection and to online reference databases; a microform reader/printer; adult and children's programs and a coin-operated photocopier. The Friends of the Library support many of the children's programs including the Summer Reading Program.
