DiCaprio Computer Center Opens

April 9, 1999

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Leonardo DiCaprio movie posters cover the walls of the computer center at the new Los Feliz Branch Library, built on land where the actor’s family home once stood.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center contains seven terminals with software to help students with math, language and study skills, library spokesman Peter Persic said Thursday at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the branch.

DiCaprio and his family, who are longtime residents of the Los Feliz neighborhood, donated $35,000 to fund the computer center, Persic said. The ``Titanic″ actor did not attend the ceremony.

``There are lots of books about Leonardo DiCaprio on the shelves, but I doubt they’ll stay there for long,″ Persic said.
