About the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
Occupying an entire city block in West Adams, the William Andrews Clark Library, constructed in 1926, continues to serve scholars well into the 21st century.
Designed by architect Robert Farquhar for philanthropist William Andrews Clark, Jr., the Beaux Arts-style building houses one of the world’s most renowned collections of rare books and manuscripts. Eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, the library was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in October 1964.
After decades of serving the public, the library had received only two alterations (the addition of an underground annex in 1950, and an expansion of the annex in 1966) until a major, multi-year renovation began in 2015.
