Did you know LACMAhas a research library? Well, they do. It is open to the public by appointment, and materials don't circulate. They do what museum libraries do best -- serve the curatorial staff, provide information about items in the museum's collections, and help collectors research the art market.

This Thursday and Friday, December 13th and 14th from 12-4 p.m., the LACMA Research Library will be holding its first annual holiday book sale. The library will be selling materials from its ever-growing collection of art books, exhibition catalogs, and Christie’s and Sotheby’s auction catalogs. They will have what promises to be a large collection of new and used art books of all varieties, and the prices will generally be half of what you might find these books for used anywhere else.

Come early for the best selection. The library at LACMA is located directly beneath the Bing Theatre.
