Bardt presents Sherman Oaks branch manager James J. Lombardo with a gold key to his new branch building. Lou Costello, who acted as emcee at the open house last Thursday night was also presented a gold key, making him an honorary manager. The new $400,000 building for Sherman Oaks branch is located at 14701 Ventura Blvd., one block west of the old quarters."
