Fabulous Stories and Photos of Los Angeles Public Library History

We would like to highlight some exciting work being done on the history of South California libraries. Tiffney Sanford, Administrative Clerk at the Los Angeles Public Library, has authored a series of wonderfully-crafted posts on LAPL’s blog that offer stories and images that you’ll find intriguing! Many thanks to her for bringing the history of one of America’s largest libraries to the web.
