Inside the Long Beach Public Library

The Main Library's [1] first building was a Carnegie funded library. The Library opened in 1909 within Pacific Park, now known as Lincoln Park, downtown on Pacific Avenue at Broadway. When the building site was condemned for construction of a New Main Library and City Hall building in the late 1970s, the library was moved to a building located on Ximeno Avenue, for a period of about 18 months.

The current Main library building occupies a first floor and lower level at 101 Pacific Ave, at the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and Pacific Avenue, across the park from its former location.
