The Charming Miss Darlow [LAPL Blog]

Enjoy Tiffney Sanford’s latest post on the history of the Los Angeles Public Library, The Charming Miss Darlow.

Darlow was a phenomenal librarian that library historians should become more familiar with…Tiffney notes that she was “a poet, a stellar book reviewer, a master at matching readers to books, and likely the most traveled library worker across Southern California in the early twentieth century.”

Beautifully illustrated and featuring reproductions on primary sources, the post includes a comic depicting LAPL…and, for those who are captivated by historic library furniture like myself, be sure to catch the photos of the newspaper reading tables in one of the top photos!
