Because a library is only as great as the community that supports it.


The Torrance Library is a cultural, educational and recreational asset to the community. Tax revenues provide only the basics. Friends ensure that our library has the resources it needs by raising funds to supplement programs and services.


We hope you will join us by becoming a member, volunteering, making a donation, and coming to our book sales.

Due to COVID-19 regular indoor   book sales are on hold. 

We are accepting donations of books, DVDs, CDs, puzzles, and games.


Please see the donation page for dropoff locations, days and times. 


  Lobby & Internet sales are open.
