Monday, October 3, 1988. Los Angeles Downtown News. "Books come out of the cold", by Eleanor Parks.

Since the two arson-set calamities which hit the Los Angeles County Central Library in 1986, the hundreds of thousands of books damaged by fire hoses are to begin being conserved. The conservation treatment has included low temperature storage, and will be completed by drying the 700,000 books in a low-pressure drying chamber. The conserved books are to be housed at the Library's temporary home in the Design Center on Spring Street. Volunteer help is preparing for the opening of the Central Library in the near future.

Monday, November 28, 1988. Los Angeles Downtown News. "L.A. Tries to Enter Arts Big Leagues".

A hotel tax along with 1% of city capital improvements and private development projects will be used to create a substantial fund for the arts, designed to benefit each of the individual communities of Los Angeles.

Sunday, December 11, 1988. Los Angeles Times. "Old Lace Craft Winning Over New Admirers", by Linda Lowe Morris.

A brief description and art historical account of lace is given in this article. Antique dealers and collectors are also given some advice on the historical importance of this type of textile. The article unfortunately ends with a brief of "Caring for Lace and Linen" in which some poor advice is given for the cleaning and bleaching of lace.
