Landed on runway 30 lgb after tower was closed. The airport is very complicated and I was afraid to try to taxi back to runway 30 west/O 'progressive taxiing' from ground control for fear of taxiing across an active runway. I departed from a runway (25L) that I was very familiar with. The next day I asked my flight instrument about it. I was then informed that I 1) violated noise abatement procedures, and 2) departed from a closed runway. There was no indication from ATIS of closed and active runways.
