Special Happenings @ the Library Shop

  Happy Birthday to Theodore Geisel AKA Dr. Seuss! March 2 is the beloved children’s author and local philanthropist 114th birthday. Since 1998, Read Across America has celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday by encouraging parents, teachers and librarians to read their favorite books to a child; and since 2013, the Library Shop has joined in by offering 20 percent off all children’s books, in store and online, for the entire month of March. Just mention you’re celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday when you visit the Shop. See what else is happening this month at March @ the Library Shop

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. To find out more about the Library Shop, their hours of operation, monthly special events, speakers, books and materials, call the Library Shop at 619-236-5802.

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. Call them for more information.
