Long Beach Public Library Foundation

Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library

The Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library opened in the Fall of 2016 and is the largest neighborhood branch in the Long Beach Public Library system. It includes a dedicated children’s library and storytime theater, a Family Learning Center, a makerspace Studio with 3D printing and virtual reality technology, adaptive technology for patrons with disabilities, private study rooms, two community rooms, dozens of general use computers, a learning garden, and more.

Thanks to the Founding Donors below, the Long Beach Public Library Foundation raised over $1 million to support enhancements and programs at the Library for the North Long Beach community to enjoy for many years to come.
