ALOUD on PLACES This summer the Library Foundation of Los Angeles in Partnership with the Los Angeles Public Library are presenting 5 different programs in parks adjacent to libraries. We’re bringing in music, speakers, performers, book bikes carrying curated books that reflect the entertainment that afternoon, library sign-up, and local food trucks. We’re hoping that families picnic and enjoy the music and readings in a beautiful public space. These events are meant to bring joy and fun to the community!
