This Month's Meeting:

The History of the La Crescenta Library

Monday, February 18th 7:00pm

La Crescenta Center for Spiritual Living
At the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta

Hear the history of our home-town library, from its beginnings in the late 1800s as a small lending library in someone's home, to the gorgeous, architecturally beautiful edifice that now marks the center of our valley. We'll also be treated to a beautiful montage of the library's construction.

Our presenter is Marta Wiggins who started her career as a language instructor, and embarked on a second career as a librarian in 2006. She has been our head librarian here in La Crescenta since the new library building opened in 2009.

Come join our favorite tour guide E.J. Stephens as he walks us through the beautiful, old and serene final resting place of pioneers of Los Angeles and Hollywood films! Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny) and Rudolph Valentino, Griffith J. Griffith and both Douglas Fairbanks' father and son, Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer and Johnny Ramone, and many, many more (did I mention Bugsy Siegel?!)

Walk the history of our fair city through the memorials of those who created it, and mausoleums nicer than most houses!

Meet inside the cemetery in front of the Cathedral Mausoleum. There's plenty of parking there. The mausoleum is easy to find. Once you go in the gates, you keep heading left until you see the lake. The mausoleum is in front of the lake.
We will do a tour that will last about two hours.

Regular meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at the the Center for Spiritual Living, formerly known as the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science located at the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta.
