Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles
The Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles (JCLLA), located at 6505 Wilshire Blvd., was one of the largest Jewish free libraries in the United States. Founded in 1948 by the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, the Library was started to offer current and accurate information about the Jewish people. The Library housed over 30,000 items, including books, movies, music. The JCLLA also housed archives of the early Los Angeles Jewish community, including manuscripts and photographs of people, organizations and places. The Library was a department of the Bureau of Jewish Education, a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. The library was closed in 2009.
