This beautiful public library is built in Huntington Central Park. It is very user-friendly, with walkability to all levels. Aside from the book collection, there is a book-sale area of low-priced used books donated to the library. There is also a children's section with computer monitors, story hour, and educational toys.

This is our hometown Library but as we are a beach destination, it serves visitors from everywhere. It was brand new when we moved here 40 yrs ago, but it has kept pace with the information age and surpassed many libraries I've visited around the world. Enjoy the peace and respite in beautiful surroundings when the weather doesn't cooperate or you just need a break from the California sunshine.
