“Great Library”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

If you haven't been there, you have to go check it out. It has a Computer Center, Language Learning Center & Daily Walk-In Tours. No reservations are necessary for groups of six or less. The tours leave from the front of the Library Store in the main lobby accessible via the Fifth Street, Hope Street, and Flower Street entrances. Tour times are:
Monday - Friday 12:30 pm
Saturday 11:00 am & 2:00 pm
Saturday only 12:30 pm -
I want to go on the New Maguire Garden Art Tour!

“Nice!!!”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

I loved the ambiance. It is a little difficult to get to, in terms of finding parking because of it's central location but definitely worth a visit if you are strolling downtown Los Angeles. While you are it, try visiting the Bradbury building as well.
