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.
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.
