Ebooks, Netflix, and Library Building Projects (Part 24, West Hollywood Library)
Developer Gives $1 Million for WeHo Library. (Park Labrea News/Beverly Press, 5/11/2011)
Excerpt: The Mani’s transformational gift, which was announced at a reception last week at Soho House, will create the Mani Family Floor at the new library. At the reception, L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, 3rd District, announced a $250,000 pledge from the County of Los Angeles. The county’s Public Library system will operate the new library facility.
“Libraries are free to anyone, that’s what makes them so important, but they aren’t free to operate,” Yaroslavsky said. “Every day we see the value that libraries bring, and we’re proud to work in partnership with the City of West Hollywood to make this new library and park expansion a flagship destination among county libraries.”
The West Hollywood Library and park expansion project will result in a greatly improved park, with an open-air court linking the library, the park and San Vicente Boulevard.
