In an era characterized by e-readers, PDFs, and dismal literacy rates, it's easy to forget how good old-fashioned page-turners can sometimes mean the difference between a meaningful life and a not-so-meaningful one. To this end, the LAPL's Library Store on Wheels brings takes the Central Library's magnificent book-filled emporium out of the building and onto the streets, cruising through different LA neighborhoods in order to help keep the importance of the printed word ahead of the pixelated one.

On Monday, Dec. 10, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles will launch The Library Store On Wheels, a mobile incarnation of the Central Library’s beloved and critically-acclaimed store.  Featuring a unique and carefully-curated collection of literary-inspired gifts, the store will visit six different neighborhood branches of the Los Angeles Public Library during its inaugural week as well as the world-famous Amoeba Records.
