A lot of libraries can be admittedly dingy and depressing, which is why this Beverly Hills branch is not just a breath of fresh air but a truly magical place sure to spark a lifetime love of reading. Honestly, you almost expect to hear angels bursting into song as you walk into the bright, beautiful, recently renovated Children’s Library. In addition to the extensive collection of books and the comfy reading desks and nooks—including chairs big enough for a parent and child to curl up together—there’s a separate, enclosed play area complete with toys, puzzles and train sets, where no shushing is necessary. Kids will also be captivated by the high-ceilinged “Enchanted Woods Room,” which is adorned with art from children’s classics, such as Alice in Wonderland and Winnie the Pooh, as well as the gorgeous, all-wood area where story times are offered for babies, toddlers, or preschoolers throughout the week (check the website for schedule and age specifics). Bonus: There’s a Kelly’s Coffee & Fudge Factory shop located in the lobby, and free two-hour parking in the adjacent city lot.
