At Access Services, we provide a service called Extramural Interlibrary Loan that facilitates any quest for knowledge beyond the walls, so to speak. For all the books we possess here in the Los Angeles Public Library system, there are those rare and exotic books that lurk outside our walls.
Many visitors to Central Library are curious to know what the oldest book in our collection might be. In recent months we have been fortunate enough to find out a great deal of new information about a very special item in our Rare Books collection.
One of the great advantages of living in Los Angeles is the ability to go out to find cuisine of just about any type.
