Miraleste Library, Rancho Palos Verdes, California

Abstract/Description: Image shows view looking east at the entrance of the Miraleste Library located at 29089 Palos Verdes Drive East in Rancho Palos Verdes. The single story Miraleste Library designed by architect Thomas J. Russell opened on October 24, 1970. Plans for a library facility on the east side of the Peninsula started as early as 1964. At that time, the nearest library was a Los Angeles County Library facility located on Narbonne Avenue. Library services were provided to the community with a small collection at the Miraleste School. While the permanent facility was being built, the Library District had an interim branch from 1966 to 1970 at Miraleste Plaza.
