The new MDA Johnson Favaro-designed West Hollywood library at Melrose Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard is now about 85 percent finished and should be completed by this May, according to Steven Johnson, principal at the Culver City-based architecture firm. At this point, interior construction, including work on the large wooden coffered ceiling on the second floor of the library, is taking place. Once completed, library staff, books, periodicals--and everything/everyone else--will move out of the old library, located next door at 715 N. San Vicente Boulevard, and into this new library, expected to open in the fall. In our rainy day photos, you can also catch a glimpse of the public garage, which will serve the library, area businesses and park goers (the park is next to the library and visible in the rendering.) One of the public entrances to the park will be accessible via that sloping park. Meanwhile, we've also been following the art that's been picked for the new library.
