Palos Verdes Library District consists of several different library locations. In Palos Verdes Estates, there is the Malaga Cove library which is located in Malaga Cove just up from the Malaga Cove Plaza. It is a beautiful old Spanish styled building that sits on a hill amidst trees and has green lawns surrounding its entrance. This is a popular spot for photographers since there is a beautiful stone fountain at the base of the steps leading up to the library. While enjoying this scenic location an occasional peacock may seen walking through the grounds.
Malaga Cove Library was constructed in 1930 at the cost of $60,000. In 1995 it was placed on the National Historic Register. The interior still has the original furniture style with Spanish claw foot leather couches and old rustic tables. This multi level space also has an art gallery in the basement which has specialized art shows, and monthly book sales. During the summer this location is the site of weekly outdoor concerts for all to enjoy. There are also numerous special children’s programs offered here, and now they also offer passport services.
