January 2012 marks the sixth anniversary of the Friends of the Santa Monica Public Library Book Store. With your help, we have raised over half a million dollars, used to support library programs such as Citywide Reads and the Image Archive Collection, and to supplement funding for books, CDs, videos, movies, furniture, Children’s and Youth Services programs, new technology, and preservation of historical documents. We thank all our patrons and volunteers for their fabulous support!
New books and audio/video materials arrive by the dozens 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.
