Library gift-shop, on wheels, in LA

Katie from the Library Foundation of Los Angeles sez, "The Library Store On Wheels, a mobile truck version of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles' beloved Central Library gift store (which LA Weekly named 'LA's Best Gift Shop'this year) hits the road December 10. Over the next two weeks, we'll be taking the mobile store around to different Los Angeles Public Library branches, as well as Amoeba Music. Packed to the gills with the most lovingly-curated selection of lit-themed gifts and nostalgic library decor, all proceeds from the store will go to benefit the Los Angeles Public Library."


  1. I love library commemorative options, and wonder if people really know about them. LA seems to have a great outreach system, but I had to stumble upon my local version by accident. I live in Cincinnati, where our Library Foundation options include prints of what is considered one of the most historically significant and technically brilliant sets of daguerreotypes available. Not as quirky as the LA offerings, but still really cool. Wired did an awesome article about them a couple of years ago, and they’re only $200 for the full set. By frame-ready-print standards, that’s not shabby at all.

    I’d be interested in seeing what other cities have. I’m partial to the local folks, but for the something that hits me in just the right way, I’ll toss my money at another town’s system.
