Special Happenings @ 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.

 Book Club Bingo and Book Launch Happy Hour @ The Library Shop

On May 22, the Library Shop is hosting a book launch happy hour for Danielle Teller’s new novel All the Ever Afters. In the vein of Wicked and The Woodcutter, the novel is a luminous re-imagining of a classic tale, told from the perspective of Agnes, Cinderella’s “evil” stepmother. Books and refreshments will be available for sale. RSVP here. On June 10, join the Library Shop for an all-day book club adventure, featuring author talks, panels, signings and giveaways. Book Club Bingo will allow you to meet and mingle with 21 of your favorite authors, including keynote speaker Jenna Blum. This is a ticketed event and all book sales will support the Library.

  SPEND MONEY, GET STORE CREDITS
Your purchases at the Library Shop at the downtown Central Library have always helped support the 36 branches of the San Diego Public Library System, but now they can help support you as well!  Simply join our Frequent Buyer’s Club next time you’re in and you’ll receive a $20 Store Credit for every $200 you spend.  It’s free, it’s easy, there’s no paperwork & we keep track so all you have to do is shop.  Stop by for full details!

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.
