California natives looking for a place to relax within the hustle and bustle of the urban landscape should check out the Los Angeles Public Library in the downtown area – one of the largest publicly funded libraries on earth.
The main branch, known as the Richard Riordan Central Library, is a peaceful place where visitors can work on their personal growth by exploring all of the books and artifacts that the library has to offer. With more than 6.4 million items contained within its branches, guests will have a plethora of information at their fingertips.
As visitors make their way to the top in the elevator, they will see that cards from the old catalog system line the walls of the car. Step out of the elevator and head to the atrium, where travelers will find the beautiful globe chandelier hanging in the peaceful room. The glass orb is surrounded by a ring of metal zodiac signs, illuminated along the edges.
