West Hollywood Opens Its New $64,000,000 Library Complex
West Hollywood Library's new edition. (Los Angeles Times, 10/1/2011)
Excerpt: The library occupies the top two floors of the sleek three-story building that will also house new City Council chambers, a coffee shop and bookstore. In addition, the development will include a 400-space parking garage and an expanded city park.
The construction of the library complex was one phase of an estimated $125-million project. The project is being paid for with a combination of reserves, parking funds and private donor gifts. About $35 million in federal stimulus bonds was used for the library and parking structure, officials said.
