1/2 block to the library parking structure
To the Courtyard
The library parking structure and La Arcada are on the same block. There are several exits from parking structure, and whichever you take head toward State Street. The southeast corner of La Arcada is at the corner of State and East Figueroa. (Almost) anyone in area can give accurate directions, because if you are on the same block as the parking structure, you aren’t more than 200′ from the building.
Courtyard to Office
The office number is 306, but there are only two floors. There are four flights of stairs and two elevators from the courtyard to the second floor. Use one of them. The second floor is shaped like the inside of a donut. Once on the second floor make an election to go clockwise or counterclockwise. Start walking and look at the names on the offices-rather than the numbers-until you come to mine.
Once in the building, don’t ask for directions. Everyone will try to give them, but they are usually wrong.
