    Villa Parke Community Center Library 

    Branch Brief

    This library, housed on the second floor of the Villa Parke Community Center, is the Pasadena Public Library's newest information outlet. The Villa Parke Community Center Library opened its doors on July 12 1992, after a long awaited restoration of the recreation facility.

    Services and Programs

    Children's Programs 

    Preschool Storytime: Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. This storytime is for preschool children and their parents or care providers. It features stories, crafts and activities suited for young children.

    For special film and craft programs, call (626) 744-6510. Or, for more information about programs here and throughout the Pasadena Public Library, you can visit our library calendar.

    Villa Parke Library Collection

    The Villa Parke Community Center Library was designed to accommodate the inexperienced library user, as well as to respond to the needs of a diverse population. Info-Stop's community and career information, core reference collection and circulating fiction and nonfiction collection make up an integral component of Spanish/English services and activities at the Villa Parke Recreation Center.

    Special Features

    Due to its unique location, this library supports and sponsors many activities in conjunction with other agencies which are housed in the center, i.e. Women, Infant and Children, Pasadena Headstart, Senior Center, and Youth Opportunity Center. The library also works closely with school, neighborhood and parent organizations and provides special programs for children and adults. Since its inception, the library has become a very strong link between the Spanish-speaking community and city government.

    Villa Parke Branch Library is pleased to offer free wireless Internet access to patrons with appropriately equipped wireless devices. A valid Pasadena Library Card and PIN are required to access the library's wireless Internet services.
