Ocean Park Branch Library

The Ocean Park Branch offers a comprehensive Self-Service solution through a grant from the State of California. Library card holders must apply and be approved in advance to enter this location.

Just blocks from the beach, the Branch provides this culturally diverse neighborhood with a wide range of popular books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks for children, teens, and adults.

Ocean Park Branch is one of the few Carnegie-endowed structures still functioning as a public library in Southern California. Built in 1917-18 on land donated by the Tegner family, the original building was designed in the Classical Revival architectural style. The Branch was declared a historic landmark by the City of Santa Monica Landmarks Commission in May 1977.
