Description
60,000 books and magazines toppled from shelves at the library during the February 9 earthquake. Carol Nishijima and Roberta Ishihara, Gardena high School students, begin the massive job of sorting and re-shelving books at the Los Angeles Public Library's depository at 134 Glendale Boulevard. Several hundred student volunteers have cleaned up more than 100,000 books at the downtown branch and are hard at work on the remaining 61 branches.
