When Words are Worth a Thousand Pictures
Well, perhaps a thousand pictures would be a bit overwhelming to look at in our context here, but over time there have been thousands upon thousands of photos taken of and inside our many Los Angeles Public Libraries, particularly the splendid Central Library in Downtown that rose from the ashes of the devastating 1986 fire.
In the spirit of the recently-launched "Save the Library" campaign, we've got a look at a few moments of beauty from some of our LAPL branches. And while photos might be worth a thousand words, we could very well have few photo opportunities--and worse, fewer opportunities to have contact with words, if we don't support our libraries.
