LIBRARY

It’s summertime at The LAFS Library, and we’re determined to help you make the most of it! We’ll be working hard all season long to help you reach your summer goals!

From relaxing activities, to free goodies, to keeping you up to date on all the great events going on around Los Angeles, the LAFS Library is dedicated to making this your best summer ever!

Work load got you stressed? Sometimes it can feel like we have too much on our plates. Take a moment to decompress and remind yourself that you’re doing your best and that you are allowed to feel overwhelmed. We’ve put together a few fun and relaxing activities for when you need some time to clear your mind. Try your hand at an origami tutorial, or see how long it takes you to finish a Sodoku puzzle. We even have some coloring pages and crayons for those of you who just want to turn your brain off for a bit. We plan to expand upon our Creation Station or “Maker Space” in the future, so if you have any suggestions for fun activities we could feature let us know!

You never know what treasures await you at the library. This season, we’re showcasing items in our collections that reflect our love of summer, the beach and all things aquatic! Come check out our display and let us know what your favorite summer-themed media are!

Summer time is the perfect opportunity to create and achieve some goals! Make use of this sunny season and challenge yourself to go for more walks, drink more water, eat more greens, join a club and read more books! We’ll be sharing some of our library staff goals throughout the summer. Let us know what your plans are!

We put together some Hot Summer Playlists to keep you cool all summer long! Got any favorite summer jams? Let us know and we’ll add ’em!

Be sure to check out some of the awesome events happening this summer! From movie screenings, to pop ups, to festivals & concerts! There’s never a shortage of things to do in this city! Be sure to wear your sunblock!
