The renovation project consisted of a large scale overhaul of the library to improve its configuration, interior organization and create more interior daylight. The first phase of intervention prioritized the enhancement of special use areas for children, teens and seniors, three of its most important community constituencies. The Library is city owned and operated and consists of an original 1960’s era building onto which Charles Moore, the world renowned late 20th century architect, added additional floor area in 1990. In all, the 75,000 SF library contains; large collections, a highly regarded research collection and reading room and one of the best fine arts collections in the Los Angeles area.
