Buena Park Library Celebrates its 90th Birthday during National Library Week

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Buena Park Library District located at 7150 La Palma Ave. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, the Library is holding an Open House on Saturday, April 18th from 10 AM to 2 PM. The fun begins with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 10 AM followed by storytelling, refreshments and multicultural performances. The multicultural performances will include Ballet Folkorico by students in Project SAY, Hula/Tahitian dancing by Hiya Papaya Productions, Indian Bollywood dancing, and a Korean kayakum performance by Esther Lee. Please join us as we celebrate our 90th Birthday!

Thanks to the Buena Park Women's Club petition for a public library, the Buena Park Library District was formed in 1919. What began as a simple collection of books by the Buena Park Women's Club has grown into the full service library of today, serving the diverse community of Buena Park and the surrounding communities of Southern California.

The Buena Park Library District has over 6,000 visitors per week and lends out 500,000 books, DVDs, audiobooks and music CDs per year. For more information, please call the Library at 714-826-4100 x125, or visit our virtual branch at www.buenaparklibrary.org. The Buena Park Library is open Monday through Thursday, 10:00 am -- 8:00 pm and Friday and Saturday, 10:00 am -- 5:00 pm.
