    General Public

    The Library is open to everyone with regular Arboretum admission. The general public may use library materials on-site, but only Arboretum members may check out materials.  Please make an appointment with Librarian Susan Eubank ( or 626.821.3213) if you’re planning to use only the Library.  Appointments are not necessary for Library art exhibits and other special events, however, regular admission applies to these activities.

    Arboretum Library Circulation Policy

    Circulation Privileges

    Books may be checked out by Arboretum members for three weeks at a time, plus an additional two renewals if needed. Items may be renewed in person, by phone, or by email. Current magazines may be checked out for three days, with no renewals. Please be sure to have your Membership Card with you.  Learn more about becoming a member of the Arboretum.
