Library History and Background
The Manhattan Beach Library was started as a subscription library in 1910 by the Neptunian Woman's Club of Manhattan Beach.
The library became part of the County of Los Angeles Public Library system in January 1915, making it one of the oldest continuing libraries in the county system. The library moved into a separate building in 1957 and to its current location in 1975.
The current 21,500-square-foot building designed by architectural firm Johnson Favaro opened in 2015. It features a two-story modern design with panoramic ocean views, an interactive children's exhibit, fireplace, automated materials handling system, and self-check machines.
