Time for the Holidays: Do your holiday planning and shopping at the Santa Monica Public Library Friends' Bookstore! We have terrific cookbooks and crafts books, plus lots of almost new books, that would be perfect gifts for friends and family. How about almost pristine copies of your aunt’s favorite mystery writer’s books? Or a recent fiction best seller or biography for your brother? And don’t forget our collection of children’s and young adults’ books that would make great presents for a local school.
Special Reference Sets: The library has given the bookstore two important sets of books for resale:
Jane’s Fighting Ships
Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft
If you are interested in either of these multi-volume sets and wish to make an offer, please stop by the bookstore or call 310-395-1951 and leave your name and phone number.
Monthly Theme: Be sure to check out our monthly theme books, displayed in the windows and on the Perennial Place cart.
Schedule: New items arrive by the dozens almost every day, so drop by soon. Bookstore hours are Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 11-4:30, Sunday 1:30-4:30, closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Location is on the left as you enter through the north entrance of the Main Library at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard.
