About the Library

Message from our City Librarian


Welcome to the Anaheim Public Library website. My name is Audrey Lujan and I am the City Librarian here at APL. We are the city's leading information hub, with a network of ten branches, including a Bookmobile, a self-service branch at ARTIC, and the Anaheim Heritage Center.

Audrey A. Lujan, City LibrarianOur staff is proud to serve the ever growing Anaheim community by providing relevant programs and a diverse collection of library resources. APL has become an essential provider of educational resources and opportunities for all ages, and continues to create new and engaging programs each year. We strive to enhance our services for each individual user’s needs, while staying updated with the latest technology and resources available to a public library.
It is our mission to promote the development of information literacy within our community, while maintaining a safe space for the diverse members of that community to enjoy, honor, celebrate and engage with one another.
