Malaga Cove Library Branch

Designed to fit into a steep hillside, this library was designed in late 1920's by M. Hunt & H.C. Chambers. The landscape architects, the Olmsteds, designed the steps, a fountain and surrounding grounds. In addition to all library-like things, MC branch has a local history room and an art gallery which is currently showing the Portugese Bend Artists Colony paintings.

Très belle cette Library. Y a-t-il des bancs à l'extérieur pour lire tranquillement ?
