Library Website Virtual Tour

Online Catalogs

The Library Catalog is available by clicking on the link from the home page of the Library Web site. The Library Catalog is where you search for books, videos, journals (but not the articles within journals - that is what an online database is for!), music CD's and other material in our collection.

Other library catalogs from nearby public and university libraries are also accessible from this page.

LAPL imageRemember that all Angelinos can register and obtain a library card at the downtown Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL), whether you live in the city itself or in the county.

The Central Library is located downtown at 630 5th St. You can search the holdings of all branch libraries through a single search interface and the catalog is also available in Spanish!


Your LAPL library card will also entitle you to LAPL catalog imageuse the HUNDREDS of databases to which LAPL subscribes.
