A Letter from Our NoHo Library


Dear North Hollywood Library patrons, 

First off, we hope you are all well and staying safe.  We miss you and look forward to seeing all of you back in our branch when the time comes.  In the meantime, our website has been converted into “The Library at Home,” where there’s something for everyone! Here are some highlights:

Spring Into Reading: “Ready, Set, Bloom!” Join our spring reading challenge today at lapl.beanstack.org. Log any books you’ve been reading while staying safe at home, complete some fun at-home activities, and earn digital badges.  Read books that you already own, or download an e-book or e-audiobook through a few different apps, which can be found at lapl.org/collections-resources/e-media. The challenge ends May 31st. 

Just for Kids and Teens: Kids Path lapl.org/kids and Teen Web lapl.org/teens, are both open for business! All LAUSD students are automatically signed up for a ‘Student Success Card’, which allows kids and teens access to our online resources.  Can’t find your card? Click on this link to request your SSC number lapl.org/webform/student-success-card-verification-form.  For little ones, the library is offering online storytimes viewable on LAPL’s YouTube page Storytime at Los Angeles Public Library, and is constantly being updated. Our own children’s librarian Ms Meredith has been posting some amazing storytimes on our social media pages, including at facebook.com/noholibrary.  Join our teen librarian Ms Emily in virtual teen council meetings, and some upcoming DnD; email her at EAppleton@lapl.org today to sign up. 

Online Materials: All you need is a library card to access a myriad of resources on our website. Don’t have one? Apply for an e-card at lapl.org/about-lapl/contact-us/e-card/e-card-registration. Access free books, movies, music, newspapers, graphic novels, and magazines on our online platforms like Overdrive, PressReader, Hoopla, and The New York Times. Learn a new language on Mango Languages, or a new skill on LinkedIn Learning/Lynda.com. Research your ancestry at Ancestry Library Edition, now available from home.  Explore it all on our “Library at Home” temporary website at lapl.org.  

Online Calendar: Everything the NoHoLibrary offers and other virtual events hosted at the 72 branches and Central Library, can all be found on our online calendar at Calendar of Events You’ll find some great programs like adult virtual art classes, mindfulness awareness sessions, and book chats on demand.

As always dear NoHoLibrary readers, stay safe & healthy,

Your NoHoLibrary Librarians
