The Library Foundation’s Young Literati is a membership group for engaged Angelenos in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who have a shared interest in the literary life of our city. Members enjoy exclusive access to creative and civic leaders, discounts on ticketed Foundation programs, and invitations to the best events on the calendar — all while supporting the vital work of the Los Angeles Public Library.

Join us in building the Library of the 21st century!
