Palos Verdes Library District
The mission of the Palos Verdes Library District is to provide a welcoming environment and open access to library services and materials that encourage lifelong learning, support the educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of our diverse Palos Verdes community, and facilitate the preservation of the Peninsula’s history.
In keeping with this mission, the Local History Center is charged with gathering historical material related to all aspects of Peninsula history including its Spanish land grant days, cattle and sheep ranching, agricultural days, early land development, city formation, and current life.
The Palos Verdes Library District's digital collection at California Revealed consists of texts from the 1920s to 1930s. The collection includes many pamphlets and brochures about the Palo Verdes Estates, a then booming community located southwest of Los Angeles.
