Celebrating L.A.’s Central Library’s 90th birthday with — what else? — a new book

From LA Times

” Next month, the Los Angeles Central Library celebrates its 90th anniversary, but at a recent talk, author Stephen Gee noted that some Angelenos don’t even know the landmark’s location.Many have never stepped inside the eight-story building at 5th and Flower streets downtown. Even for those who have, “Los Angeles Central Library: A History of Its Art and Architecture” (Angel City Press) holds some surprises — details of the paintings, sculptures, murals, gardens and décor, captured in pictures by Gee’s co-author, photographer Arnold Schwartzman.”
