The library is the final work of famed Modernist architect Marcel Breuer and has been at the center of a heated preservation effort after Fulton County Commissioner Robb Pitts said he wanted to sell the building or move the library's collection to a new facility near Centennial Olympic Park.

For more information about the event, part of the Atlanta Preservation Center's Phoenix Files series which showcases the city's "living landmarks," visit the site. (The series, which includes tours of The Wren's Nest and the Olmstead Liner Parks, is worth a look.)
