Library, Norwood Village

Norwood Village? Well, this is a first for L.A. Snapshot. Maybe I should preface this post with a quote from Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone: "You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination." While the Norwood Library is at a real location on Peck Road, the community of Norwood Village does not exist. It's an area otherwise known as North El Monte. Apparently, there was an intent to designate it as a separate district, but the plans fell through and it never happened. So, how did I find Norwood Village in the first place? In a Thomas Guide map book from the year 2000.
