Description
Exterior view of the Robertson Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library,located at 1719 S. Robertson Blvd., between Airdome and 18th Streets. In the display case on the bottom right, a banner reads, "Books invite all, they constrain none". At the time of its construction, it was said that the 4,000 square ft. library had a modern, functional feel and could hold 17,000 books. The building was designed by Allison and Rible and lasted until the mid-1990s, when it was razed to make way for a larger branch.
