Fairbanks Center For Motion Picture Study, a Los Angeles landmark built in 1928, was restored and converted into its current function by Fran Offenhauser and Michael J. Mekeel. Landmark preservationists were thrilled that this building was not torn down. Now, under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, it houses the Margaret Herrick Library, dedicated to one of the world's best collections of film-related reading, from books to magazines and other gems. The library is free and is a great resource for serious film aficionados.
