Our tour had too many highlights to mention, but here is a sampling:
The Lodwrick M. Cook Rotunda--This fabulous space on the 2nd level is somewhere anyone can come to be awed by the Dean Cornwall murals and the magnificent globe chandelier.
The Library Store run by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles--This store has perhaps the best book-related merchandise and stationary selection in LA. And all sale proceeds go to support LAPL.
All in all, it was a wonderful day at one of the best public libraries in the world.
