      The LA Library is a great place to find the book you need or want with only a moderate amount of difficulty. This comes with the territory, though, as the place is four stories and full of knowledge. If you’re new to the whole library thing, or intimidated by its hulking size, then pretend you’re helpless and ask the librarians.

      They’re pretty helpful if they’re not busy, though sometimes they are. The place


      has literally every book ever written by Man.

      And watch out for the book sales. They are a great opportunity to pick up like a hundred books for less than a hundred dollars.

      Well, the library is more than a place to get books - it’s a nexus of local culture. You can get information on almost any cultural event, activity, or facility in the LA area.

      It’s a great place to visit ...


      • if you’re killing a day (or anything else) in downtown LA. Beware the bathrooms, though.

        I was there once and I had to go, so I went into the nearest restroom. They aren’t exactly clean or fresh smelling.

        As for becoming a member, it’s naturally free if you can prove your LA citizenship, which you can do with any official document that has your name and address on it. I got my

        card using a personal check I’d written to my girlfriend.

        And a word on parking: it’s not free, but it’s cheaper if you get your ticket validated by the desk people. And pay your ticket at the automated machine before getting in your car and driving off.

        Otherwise your meeting with the unmanned gate will be very rude indeed. My review: a 10, as books are great, and the LA Library is a true Temple.
