Library Shop to Host Matchbook Short Story Contest

Calling all writers! The Library Shop is hosting a short story contest, all proceeds of which support the San Diego Public Library. And when we say short, we mean SHORT. Submissions must fit on the inside of a matchbook cover! The winning author will have their story printed on the official Library Shop matchbook, receive 50 free copies of the matchbook, a $50 gift certificate to the Library Shop, publication in this very newsletter, and a limited engagement exhibition run in the Hervey Family Rare Book Room’s tiny book display. Entry fee is $5 and the deadline to enter is November 1. Click on ENTRY RULES to learn more.

The Library Shop is a non-profit book & gift store located in the courtyard of the Downtown Central Library sponsored by the Friends of the Public Library and the San Diego Public Library Foundation.

As the plans for Downtown Central Library were being developed, space was set aside for a Library Gift/Book Shop to be located on site. It features a wide selection of well-curated books, gifts, cards, jewelry, and more. Proceeds support all 36 San Diego Public Libraries. Come see why San Diego Magazine named it the best literati boutique in San Diego. Life-members of the Friends of the Library receive 10% off all purchases. The Library Shop also sponsors monthly special events for adults like trivia games, adult spelling bees, and planting succulents workshops. Click on Library Shop.
