The Los Angeles Public Library can even help you discover the history of your house!

Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Public Library does not offer any museum passes to its patrons. However, any California resident can obtain a library card to the County of Los Angeles Public Library – and that museum participates in the Discover and Go museum pass program!

Have too much month at the end of your money? Me too - and that's how Low Income Relief got started. I have over 20 years of professional research and writing experience. Over the years, I've worked as a novelist, journalist, ghostwriter and content creator. My work has been featured in various print and online publications, including USA Today, eHow.com, Livestrong.com, Legal Beagle, The Daily Herald (Provo, Utah), The Chronicle (Centralia, WA) and others. At Low Income Relief, I use my professional research and reporting experience to help low income families save money and make ends meet. It's been my full-time job since 2016, and it's truly an honor to serve you.
