Los Angeles Public Library is a location and a landmark in L.A. Noire. Antonia Maldonado is found with half of a library card when her corpse is being examined for identification in the case "The Silk Stocking". The Library is located at 630 W. 5th St. between Flower and Grand in Downtown, Los Angeles.
Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue drew on Ancient Egypt to create his high temple-like Central Library. The building is roofed over with a mosaic pyramid and a sculptured torchbearing hand stands at the apex, representing the scientific 'Light of Learning'.
A badge in the Badge Pursuit Challenge can be found here. On the side of the roof that overlooks 5th street there are two tanks. Between those two tanks is another level to the roof. The badge is in the center of that roof between the two tanks. Access is gained by climbing a drain pipe to the right of the entrance. Proceed to climb the scaffold to your left.
- Towards the southern side of the building on the ground floor wall there is also a crude graffiti penis added in, likely as an easter egg.
- The symbol of the eye in the pyramid is masonic and is seen on the US dollar; it represents enlightenment.
