How many times have you driven by the Theosophical Library Center on Lake Avenue in Altadena and just...kind of...wondered what they did in there?
Altadena stayed open 'til 9:00 Friday night and I was there to explore. The Theosophical Library Center closed at 4:30 as usual and I got there at 4:25, with just enough time to take a picture and ask a few questions in this tranquil space.
According to the literature, the primary objective of the Library "is to provide the resources which can lead to a better understanding of the wisdom of life and its essential commonality." Among many others, the library offers books published by the Theosophical University Press. Those books are available online for free, I'm told.
The Library is open almost every day from 2:00-4:30. Call (626) 7898-8020 to make sure.
What is Theosophy? Well, that's a little question with a very big answer.
