About the branch

Lake Los Angeles and other rural areas in the Eastern Antelope Valley were served by a County of Los Angeles Public Library bookmobile for 20 years. A letter-writing campaign prompted the development of a permanent site to better serve the community. The library opened on May 19, 1992 with a grand opening ceremony on May 30, 1992.
