The Friends of the Chinatown Library is a non-profit voluntary organization dedicated to help the Chinatown Branch Library of the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) system.  The Friends of the Chinatown Library welcomes interested volunteers in any capacity. If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please contact the staff directly at the Chinatown Branch (click Library).

Our mission is threefold: (1) Develop community awareness of public use of library materials and services.
