The Los Angeles Public Library does not own or operate public parking facilities in the vicinity of the Central Library. In an attempt to assist users in locating reasonable parking, the Library has negotiated reduced-rate parking at the Westlawn Garage on 524 S. Flower Street. Validation rates are in effect only during the hours the library is open to the public. Please note that all parking rates are subject to change without notice!

The Westlawn Parking Garage under the library building is expected to be extremely congested and it could take up to three hours to enter or leave. Attendees who wish to park under the library building, please plan accordingly.
