LASFS Current Location:   6012 Tyrone Ave , Van Nuys, CA 91401
New Location Coming Soon:  Karl Lembke, Chairman of the LASFS Board of Directors, wrote in his zine for APA-L (October 27, 2016):  "As you may have heard by now, the LASFS building has been sold.  We have eight months to find new digs and move in to them.  Or rely heavily on the kindness of members with storage spaces.  (Maybe both.)"   Elayne Pelz says, "The building is sold as of November 28th.  We can rent back for six months after that time."
