Beverly Hills Public Library
The Italian Renaissance-style City Hall of Beverly Hills opened to the public in 1931, and the library scooted right into its new civic center home though the library itself was established 3 years prior. The Beverly Hills Public Library now houses 293,813 volumes and is undergoing a $3.5 million renovation to its children and teens areas.
The library follows suit with the rest of Beverly Hills in class and patron demographics. There are shopping baskets available for the convenience of book borrowers. There’s an on-going monthly performance by the American Songbook enthusiast, Jim Jimirro, for Beverly Hills’s 17.7% senior population. And there are 22 points under the library’s “Library patrons will not…” compared to Los Angeles Public Library’s 13.
