We hope you have a chance to visit our satellite locations across all parts of Los Angeles County, from Lancaster to Long Beach. At these locations you’ll find many of the same resources and services at the Main Library, but closer to your home or office. Resources and services may vary by location.

Many of these locations offer free public computers with access to legal research databases and staff available to assist you. Some locations are open on weekday evenings and Sundays.

Please click the name of any of the locations below to find out more!

We are excited to announce that our Torrance Branch is now open to the public.

Reopening for our Long  Beach Branch coming soon.

We strongly encourage patrons to wear a mask when inside the Law Library to protect the health of our valued patrons and staff. We also ask that you follow all posted and printed Patron Expectations (en español, haga clic aquí) and Rules of Conduct. We can’t wait to see you!

Due to COVID-19, in-person LA Law Library staff assistance at other LA Law Library Partnerships remains on hiatus until further notice. However, our commitment to providing service, assistance and support remains as strong as ever. We will be offering reference assistance and free e-delivery up to 25 pages.
