Shopping at the Library 2/9/2007

It's surprising to find such a chic gift shop in a public library. Located in the Grand Central Los Angeles Public library downtown, it's great for picking up a well-designed card, delicate piece of jewelry, or witty book on your lunch break. There's a section devoted to Los Angeles travel and art books for tourists or natives wanting to further their knowledge of the city and a rotating stock of coffee table books, tote bags and purses, and artistmade jewelry. The store offers designer items like jewelry from Alexis Bittar and purses from LoopNYC as well as kookier items like cutesy Japanese stationery and t-shirts declaring ""I like boys in glasses"". I also enjoy the large selection of post cards and magnets featuring vintage images of LA scenes or '50s housewives. There's also usually a sale about once a month, with a variety of cards, books, and gift items on sale for 25%-50% off. Best of all, the profits benefit the Library Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds literary programs for children and teens. Pros: Rotating stock of products, Friendly Staff Cons: Parking can be tricky more

By far the best. 8/15/2002

Im glad to see this library recovered fully from the fire. The interior is contemporary and clean. Everything has been well laid out. You can find almost any book here, and if not, the librarians will be more than willing to assist you in either locating the book or finding one better than the one you were looking for. Take a ride in the elevator, youll find the old card catalogue system on your way up and down. Outside is a beautiful sitting area laid out in tiers. Youll also find that they offer many programs for kids, teens and adults alike. Pros: Find any book, Friendly Staff, Great Park Entrance more
