Local History Videos

The small video collection contains tapes of recent Library Board meetings, and some special community events of historical interest.  Two productions which give a good overview of the Peninsula’s history are Palos Verdes Paradise, narrated by former KNXT reporter Ralph Story in 1988, and Rancho Palos Verdes: Past & Present, produced in 1993.  A more extensive history is provided in a 4-part lecture series entitled A Brief History of Palos Verdes, given in 1992 by former PV historian Carmen Marinella.

Videos and DVDs may be viewed in the Local History Room.  Some have duplicate copies which are available in the Library’s circulating video collection.
