The Louis Zamperini Foundation, A Chance For Children, LAPD, and Little Free Library have teamed up to place a Little Free Library in the lobby of the Torrance Police Station. A Little Free Library is a “take a book, leave a book” gathering place where members of the community can share their favorite stories. A Chance For Children has placed Little Free Libraries into every LAPD station in Los Angeles, to great success. We are so thrilled to be sharing this with the Torrance Police Department.

  A ribbon cutting event and the reading of a story to a class of 35 pre-schoolers from First Lutheran school in Torrance took place Monday morning.

Torrance Chief of Police, Mark Matsuda, said, “Child custody exchanges take place in the police department lobby regularly and the Little Free Library will be a welcoming activity for all involved."

The books target children ages six-16, and are free. All children are invited to stop by and pick out a book (or two) to read or drop one off to share.
