Memorialize the beauty and spirit of this remarkable historic structure, the vibrancy of the park and the majesty of the Pacific Ocean.

The Redndo Beach Historic Library was designed by architect Lovell Pemberton and opened in July of 1930. A three-story building, the library combined both Spanish and Dutch colonial styles with arched windows and gables on its north and south wings. Art Deco moldings decorated the front facade, and windows were set in almost every wall to allow unrestrained views of the bay. 

Built just to the right of a Moreton Bay Fig tree which still stands today and is itself a registered landmark, the library served Redondo Beach residents for sixty years, until a new library was built on Pacific Coast Highway. 

It secured its place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981. The library served as an events venue for over 20 years and has been empty since the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic. It is ready now to showcase contemporary thought- provoking art.
