About Branching Out

This summer the Library Foundation of Los Angeles in Partnership with the Los Angeles Public Library are presenting 5 different programs in parks adjacent to libraries. We’re bringing in music, speakers, performers, book bikes carrying curated books that reflect the entertainment that afternoon, library sign-up, and local food trucks. We’re hoping that families picnic and enjoy the music and readings in a beautiful public space. These events are meant to bring joy and fun to the community!

Where is the event located?

This program will take place at the Echo Lake Park, at 751 Echo Park Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Where should I park?

There is a free street parking at Echo Park Lake and surrounding neighborhoods. Please note: give yourself ample time to find street parking as it often takes time to find a free space on the weekends.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Contact the Public Programs office at programs@lfla.org or by calling 213.292.6254.
