Follow a day in the life of the Los Angeles Public Library, as Phillip Saffell shows us how this public space serves as his home.
18 million people make use of the Los Angeles Public Library system every year. At the heart is the Central Library located in downtown Los Angeles, a cross-roads of LA culture and its people, commingling in one of the last public places.
Phillip Saffell is one of these regulars. He has been visiting this library almost everyday
for 8 years. With access to computers, art books, and a comfortable desk, the library has become a haven of ideas and productivity. But beyond that, it is the fellow patrons and employees that have made the library a place of safety and respect - a home.
