The Friends of the Echo Park Branch Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the Echo Park community including Historic Filipinotown. We are a partner of the Echo Park Branch Library of the Los Angeles Public Library System.

We are the only library in Los Angeles where you can find the Philippine Heritage Collection. We have started the Carlos Bulosan Book Club and the Carlos Bulosan Podcast (www.carlosbulosanpodcast.com).

Our goal is to help empower our community by providing a platform for community members to learn, engage, connect and grow. Reading opens opportunities to individuals to realize their full potential.

READING leads to KNOWLEDGE and knowledge leads to POWER.
