Public Relations Office, Library Administration,
City Librarian John F. Szabo.

We are proud to share that Los Angeles Central Library was recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for reducing energy costs by 20 percent through the Better Buildings Challenge and with our partner, the city's General Services Department!

We were honored to host a tour of Central Library’s energy improvements for U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency Kathleen Hogan and for leaders of the City’s General Services Department. Here are some photos from their visit and from the Energy Innovation Awards ceremony.
