Library Services for Adults

The Adult Services Department, located on the 2nd floor, provides library visitors with information about materials and services that are primarily for adults. Assistance using those materials and services is provided, as well.

The library’s collection of materials includes digital and Internet resources such as DVDs, CDs, ebooks, and audiobooks in addition to the numerous books, magazines, newspapers, and other print items on our shelves. A range of services such as research assistance, public-use computers, document printing and copying, private study rooms, and instructional workshops are also available to make visits to the library as productive and enjoyable as possible.

The Adult Services Department can be contacted by phone at (310) 412-4280. For more information on how to reach someone within the department, see ABOUT US.
