And still more Monrovia...

Carnegie Libraries of California

Sorry, I'm on a roll.... Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia appears to be a treasure trove--I wish I could say that the library above still stands, but it was replaced in 1956. I've always loved Carnegie libraries, especially after seeing the one (also demolished) in Santa Rosa in my one of my favorite movies--even if not set in L.A.--Shadow of a Doubt. I can almost smell the inside of this place. Btw, Los Angeles City had a number of Carnegies, and three still exist, including the Vermont Square library at 48th and Budlong:
