The American Indian Resource Center (AIRC) was established in 1979 to address informational needs of American Indians in Los Angeles County and to make information about them available to the larger community. The AIRC collection is the largest public library collection of its kind in the U.S. Collection materials come in a variety of formats: books, journals, encyclopedias, newspapers, microfilm, audiocassettes, books-on-tape, CD, DVD, VHS, and 8, 16, 35 mm film, most of which can be checked out. AIRC is also an information center with announcements of events, classes, conferences, etc. pertaining to American Indians - local, regional, and national – on topics ranging from health issues, education, legal issues, economic issues, politics, and culture. American Indian “NDN” 101, an informal question and answer forum, is held every third Saturday of the month from 1 – 5 PM. This is an open forum for the public to ask questions and get answers about American Indian history, culture, and current affairs.

Native American Heritage Month is celebrated every year during the month of November.
