Library interior, Miraleste Library

Abstract/Description: Image shows view of the library, with a woman unpacking boxes and stacking books, in front of a three panel window. A book cart and boxes are visible in the foreground and at left. Visible in the distance is a concrete wall and a house. Located at 29089 Palos Verdes Drive East in Rancho Palos Verdes, the library was designed by architect Thomas J. Russell and 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.
