Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s always a good time to curl up with a great book—even more so when you have libraries as beautiful as we do in Los Angeles. Sure, you may not find Hogwarts-like halls filled with books, but L.A. does have its fair share of Renaissance-inspired sanctuaries and Art Deco shrines to literature. From a Downtown landmark to a state-of-the-art complex in Santa Monica, these are the most beautiful libraries in Los Angeles. Oh, and while you’re checking out a book, make sure to brush up on how your L.A. library card can save you cash.
