Friends of the Encino-Tarzana Library


Updates from our library on:
While LA stays safe at home, the Encino-Tarzana Library staff (pictured from last Halloween on Instagram) will be telecommuting. We'll share our thoughts, book reviews, eMedia suggestions, and craft ideas. We want you to benefit from our library resources and programs, because while we're closed, we're still here for you.

Check the LAPL website for online events for children, teens and adults.

Our Mission:

The purposes of the Friends are to enhance community interest for the Library as a prime cultural and educational asset; to focus public attention on its resources and services; to encourage and receive gifts, endowments and bequests to the Library; to raise funds in support of the Library's collection, services, operations, and facilities; and to support and cooperate with the Library in developing library services and programs for the community.

Friends in Action

Coming back soon: Every day - Browse, buy, and enjoy!.

Mid-March 2021 until now: We are waiting for the Library to fully reopen. In 2003 we came back after the 2-3 reconstrucion period when there was no library at all. We will be back when LAPL allows us to meet, accept donations, open the Bookstore in the Library, and have our Big Book Sales again. We hope that is in early 2022

6/24/2021 - Six HOTP today, more regular activities resuming.
