‘From the Ashes’

Your editorial “From the Ashes” (Nov. 3) set forth the problems and hopes of the Los Angeles Central Library with fairness and comprehension. Your support in recognizing the benefit of this unique public and private project for our city was accurate, thoughtful and timely.

The City Council has approved a budget of $152.4 million and our funding, including a temporary Central Library, seems assured. We have resolved the confusion over the design and the project is again proceeding.

Our efforts are now directed toward finding a suitable location for the Temporary Library, and we are hopeful that we will be able to again share our resources with the citizens of our city in early 1988.
