Come to “MYhistoricLA” on April 4 at Central Library
Please join us on Saturday, April 4, 2009, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the historic Los Angeles Central Library, for “MYhistoricLA,” a special citywide kickoff celebration of SurveyLA, Los Angeles’ first-ever comprehensive survey of its historic resources. We hope you’ll help us spread the word by passing this message along to friends and to other local community organizations.
From 1:00 – 2:30 p.m., join Larry Mantle , KPCC-FM’s host of Air Talk, for a lively panel with City officials, preservationists, community organizers and developers discussing the key issues surrounding Los Angeles’ citywide survey. (Panel seating is limited. Reservations recommended: http://www.lfla.org/aloud/index.php ( http://lacity.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e91f7a012458eb114cfb8177b&id=43f7a1ed5c&e=XWWdnr70Hg ))
While Los Angeles has a rich and diverse cultural heritage and a remarkable architectural legacy, 85% of the city has never been surveyed to identify these significant historic places. Historic preservation professionals conducting the survey cannot know all of the potential historic resources throughout the city – and that’s why we need your help. We want to know your special story about a local building or the neighborhood you live in.
Join like-minded amateur historians and Los Angeles aficionados for the public launch of SurveyLA and share your knowledge of L.A.’s hidden gems. Other activities will include:
11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.:
* Tell us about a lesser-known place that you consider particularly important to your neighborhood or the entire city – YOUR Historic L.A.
* Participate in an interactive display demonstrating how the survey teams will identify historic sites, and how they will use the information you’re providing.
* Learn how you can bring “MYHistoricLA” to your own neighborhood.
* Sign up to become a SurveyLA volunteer.
* Register to receive regular updates as SurveyLA progresses throughout Los Angeles.

11:00 and 11:30 a.m., 12:00 noon, 3:00 and 3:30 p.m.:
* Enjoy screenings of the award-winning video SurveyLA: Preserving Los Angeles.
