As a result of his financial contributions and work with the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, this rotunda in the Central Library was dedicated to Lodwrick M. Cook, an American businessman. After a 1986 fire set by an arsonist, he worked to help the library in rebuilding after over 400,000 books and periodicals were destroyed. The room is covered with murals depicting eras significant in the founding of Los Angeles. The chandelier in the middle is a beautifully crafted globe.
