LAPL Operating Hours

Central Library and regional branch libraries will be open during the same hours and the branch libraries will have their own set of hours. The Central Library and branch libraries have been open on Sundays starting January 12, 2014. Thanks voters! The restoration of hours was made possible by voter-approved Measure L which was passed in March of 2011.
