In the heart of the Financial District is the Los Angeles Public Library. Constructed in 1926, and restored in 1993, the library houses murals and sculptures dating from the 1920s and '30s, as well as recent works by prominent living artists. In addition to the 2.1 million books, 10,000 magazines, and over 2 million historic photographs, the library presents fabulous exhibitions, lecture series and public programs. The library also houses "Shades of L.A.," a multi-cultural archive of 3,000 photos tracing the history of Los Angeles’ ethnic cultures from the 1800s to the present.
