Ah, that clears things up a bit. No, I meant the city system. Their
recently-retired head of the Business Library has mentioned the
collection needing contributions recently, but I'll confirm with her
when I see her next, in a couple of weeks. I'm not sure what the
Business Library has to to with cookbooks, apart from Billie being a
foodie, but it's all good.
The next few CHSC events:
UPCOMING EVENT FOR THE CULINARY HISTORIANS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA*

public. Monthly programs take place at the beautiful Mark Taper
Auditorium at the Los Angeles Central Library, Mark Taper
Auditorium, downtown central branch, at 630 W. 5^th St.

*Saturday, October 11, 2008 10:30 a.m.*

... which means, I guess I bail out of GWW right after Saturday's war
court. I wonder what Charles wants for post-meeting refreshments?

> I was confused. You keep saying LAPL, but there are two different public libraries in Los Angeles. There is Los Angeles City Public Library and Los Angeles County Public Library. And their branch coverage overlaps. The City Library did indeed have a reasonable cookbook collection at their main branch before the fire. Do talk to their librarians to make sure that the library as a whole still wants to replace their lost collection.
