Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Pedestrians walk by the University Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, located at 3420 S. Hoover Street. University Branch, now Exposition Park Branch, was constructed in the Romanesque style to harmonize with other USC buildings. The architects were Hibbard, Gerity & Kerton. In 1965, the building was sold to the University of Southern California for development purposes and the branch collections were moved to a storefront at 1479 West Adams Boulevard. In 1973 the University Branch was renamed the Exposition Park-Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Regional Branch Library in honor of the great educator and humanitarian. Two years later, the branch left the storefront location and was placed in a new building located at 3665 South Vermont Avenue.
